Rhododendron - Gomer Waterer, Rhododendron catawbiense Gomer Waterer , is a dense, compact shrub that is very effective as an accent plant in the garden. Gomer Waterer provides attractive large, dark green, leathery leaves with flowers that are tight and ball shaped. The gorgeous white petals are white-flushed lavender pink with a yellow flare; measures 3 inches in diameter, and are held in a dome-shaped truss of up to 24 flowers! The foliage and flowers together create a soft color combination. This rhododendron prefers cooler regions is sun tolerant, and looks good year around. This easy care rhododendron needs excellent drainage, mulching and a peat moss soil additive. Roots will rot in poorly drained soil, so well-drained soil is a must! Gomer Waterer requires regular waterings, particularly in hot, dry weather; established plants can benefit from fertilization. Rhododendrons are ornamental, acidic-soil loving broad-leaf evergreens and are ideal for shrub borders and informal hedges. The most favorable time to prune is when there are no flower buds in the early spring, just before growth begins.
