Spectacular, Early Spring Blooms
Korean Rhododendron is a deciduous shrub with lovely, early spring flowers. Plant some in a grouping in your front yard for a spectacular, early spring display.
These would also be a terrific shrub border for your side yard, or even just one near a window would be a delightful way to watch spring welcomed in.
Your Korean Rhododendron is beloved for its early spring blooms. The stunning, rosy-purple flowers display an eye-catching, funnel-shape that will create an entrancing picture for your early spring landscape.
The flowers open successively from clusters of buds at the end of the shoots before the leaves even begin to unfurl. Having a Korean Rhododendron in your yard ensures that you’ll be seeing many early butterflies and hummingbirds as they’re drawn to the bright, vibrant blooms.
The 3-inch long leaves have pointed tips and bring your Korean Rhododendron a lush, green appearance throughout the summer months. Brush against a few of the elliptical leaves to enjoy their pleasing fragrance. When fall arrives, the foliage offers one last gasp of color with yellow and red shades for your autumn landscape.
Korean Rhododendron will grow to 2 1/2 feet tall with a 3-4 feet spread. It has an upright, rounded nature and prefers partial to full shade with moist soils.
Rhododendrons have always been prized for their remarkable spring color. Once you have a Korean Rhododendron in your yard, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without one!
