Rhododendron 'Aglo' web.jpg (14429 bytes)
Rhododendron 'Aglo'


Description:

Rhododendrons are ornamental, acidic-soil loving broad-leaf evergreens.  They grow best in partial shade.  Prefers to be planted on the North or East side as a South/Soutwest exposure increases chance of winter injury.  Loves to be planted with pre-moistened peat moss.  Well-drained soil is a must!!

 

Type: Evergreen Shrub
Soil Preference: Well-drained and acidic to slightly alkaline.
Light Requirements: Sun to Partial Shade
Attributes: This plant needs excellent drainage, mulching and a peat moss soil additive.  Roots will rot in poorly drained soil.   Will not do well in windy sites.   
Pests: Lace bug
Diseases: Salt Burn, Sun Burn, Phytophtora Root Rot
Care: Apply Di-Syston April 15th and July 4th to prevent lace wing fly.  Use Holly-tone to fertilize and use Ironite to green up the leaves.   Pinch off flowers after they fade.  Fertilize with Holly-tone approximately April 1st, May 20th, July 4th & October 30th.  Keep granular fertilizers off foliage and away from stems and trunks.  Use 1/2 the recommended rate of fertilizer for new plantings.

Planting Instructions: Rhododendron & Azaleas
