Rhododendron Ponticum is a vigorous evergreen shrub with leathery, oblong, dark green leaves and funnel-shaped, lilac-pink to rosy purple flowers, growing in terminal clusters and blooming in spring. Rhododendron Ponticum grows best in acidic, organically rich, evenly moist, well-drained soils. It prefers dappled shade, but is tolerant of full shade and full sun. Its roots are shallow and poor drainage may lead to a root rot. It is tolerant of frost and air pollution. It is resistant of frost, but needs to be sheltered from strong winds. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require much pruning. Susceptible to many insect and disease problems. Rhododendron Ponticum is a versatile landscape shrub, but it is considered to be very invasive. Therefore, any pruning or waste material must be disposed of responsibly. It is perfect as a specimen or foundation plant in informal, cottage, and urban gardens. Excellent for shade gardens. Great for beds and borders, banks and slopes, or informal hedges.

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).
