The English Roseum Rhododendron can thrive in a wide array of conditions and will provide dependable springtime color. Trumpet-shaped flowers grow in clusters of 8 to 10, creating globes of rose-pink blooms. The flowers have slightly ruffled petals and feature dark specs on the topmost petal. This is a dense plant that has long leaves in a medium green hue.
With an upright growth habit and a dense appearance, use this Rhododendron to create a hedge or privacy screen. Create a mixed border and plant this spring-blooming beauty alongside shrubs that bloom throughout the growing season for consistent color. Pollinators like butterflies and hummingbirds are attracted to the showy blooms. English Roseum Rhododendron is a broadleaf perennial growing in USDA zones 4 through 8.
English Roseum Rhododendron Care
This plant needs full sun to partial shade, but it prefers more shade than light. Water weekly or when the top layer of soil dries out during the first year. Established plants will benefit from routine watering, but they can be allowed to dry out more. Soil should be moist but well-drained, rich, and acidic.
Apply a balanced fertilizer in the spring. Top-dress the soil with organic mulch to feed the plant and help retain moisture. Shape as needed after the flowers fade and remove damaged growth at any time.
English Roseum Rhododendron Spacing
This vigorous upright perennial will grow 7 to 8 feet tall and wide. When creating a hedge or consistent planting, rhododendrons should be spaced 6 to 8 feet apart.
