Rhododendrons are a group of evergreen shrubs known for their showy, vibrant flowers and attractive foliage. Rhododendron hybrids, in particular, are prized for their large size and stunning blooms, making them a popular choice for landscapes and gardens.

A mature Rhododendron hybrid can grow up to 10-15 feet tall and 8-10 feet wide, creating a substantial presence in any setting. The plant features dense, bushy foliage that remains green throughout the year, adding color and texture to the landscape.

One of the most notable features of a mature Rhododendron hybrid is its impressive flowers. The blooms can range in color from white and pink to red, purple, and even yellow, depending on the specific variety. They are typically large and showy, often measuring 4-6 inches in diameter, and can completely cover the shrub in a blanket of color.

In addition to its visual appeal, a mature Rhododendron hybrid is also low-maintenance and easy to care for. It prefers acidic soil and partial shade, and requires regular watering and fertilization to ensure healthy growth and vibrant blooms.

Overall, a mature Rhododendron hybrid is an impressive and stunning addition to any landscape, offering year-round color and beauty that is sure to be admired by all who see it.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
