Profusion of Purple on Petite Plant
Rhododendron - Ramapo, Rhododendron 'Ramapo', is a dense-growing evergreen shrub that has a very dwarf compact habit. It matures to 1'-2' high with a spread of 2'-3'.
Clusters of flowers are about 1" long, light violet-purple, no markings. Large trusses of the showy flowers are a beautiful contrast to the leaves.
The bluish green foliage makes it an asset to the landscape all year around.
Ramapo is very effective when a smaller accent is needed. If you have a small garden with little room for a large rhododendron - this dwarf rhodo may be for you!
Rhododendrons are ornamental, acidic-soil loving broad-leaf evergreens. They grow best in full sun to partial shade.
Plant in a location protected from strong winter winds. Ramapo loves to be planted with pre-moistened peat moss.
Well drained soil is a must!
Use in mass, group or specimen for shrub borders, mixed borders, woodland gardens and shade gardens.
This dwarf is exceptional as a container-grown plant and bonsai. Ramapo also prefers cooler regions.
