Plant Details: Carolina Rhododendron
4 - 7
This stunning white large flowered form will win the attention of any of rhododendron lovers. The species was described by French Botanist Andreas Michaux. It is my opinion the base standard species that the more common species Rhododendron minus developed from. It is similar to Rhododendron minus var. minus, and grows to 6-10'High x 8'Wide. This selection we made on our friends Ken and Luella Cleveland's property in Rabun co. Ga. and has larger than normal pure crystal white flowers. Easy to grow in rich organic with acidic soils around 5 - 6.5ph works very well. Well drained soils that hold average moisture are a must in eastern gardens with partial sun exposure in the Piedmont partial to full sun exposure in the mountain region gardens. This is going to be a true winner in the trade or a Rhododendron lovers garden for those who prefer crystal white flowered pure species of Rhododendrons.
