Are you looking for something to brighten your spring garden with unique elegance and showy textured flowers? Then look no further because Ken Janeck Rhododendron can do that and more! This smaller, spring-blooming perennial has exquisite white flowers bordered with multi-stemmed, pale pink flowers, highlighted by leathery, dark green foliage with a thick underlayer of fawn indumentum. This outstanding performer is a multiple-time Rhododendron of the Year award winner and has won many other awards, including the 2002 Cary Award. 

Hardy in zones 5-8, this upright, dense evergreen has a low spreading habit and is perfect for borders and beds. Unlike other rhododendrons, Ken Janeck needs no deadheading and is incredibly low maintenance! You can highlight the unique blooms in a small garden or container or plant this shrub in groupings to make a big impact! Its height and spread make it perfect for a half-wall garden border or privacy screen. It also attracts hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies, bringing an aura of life into your space. 

Ken Janeck Rhododendron Care

This adaptable plant can grow in either full sun or partial shade in an area with sufficient wind protection. Grow it in well-draining soil, rich in organic matter, and with an acidic pH of 5.0 to 5.5. It is essential to note that this plant is toxic to dogs, cats, and horses, so be careful where you choose to plant it. During the first growing season, water regularly, at least twice a week, and then weekly once established, to promote a deep and healthy root system. After the first bloom, feed it with a fertilizer for acid lovers and mulch to keep the root system cool during the summer. In the fall, provide it with a fertilizer formulated for rhododendrons and azaleas. Take care to only fertilize before the end of autumn, as fertilizing afterward can result in spindly growth the following spring. 

Remove any spent or dead flowers at the end of the spring blooming season to ensure the number of flowers will remain the same during the following season. If you notice any dead or diseased branches, prune them off at any time except in the winter. If the shrub grows past its designated area, trim it back to a more compact form. 

Ken Janeck Rhododendron Spacing

This rhododendron has a mature height of 2-3 feet and a mature spread of 3-4 feet. Therefore, when planting multiples, space them 4 feet away from each other. If planting in a container, choose a large container with plenty of drainage holes and loose, well-draining soil, and place it in a spot protected from extreme heat.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
