One of Our Fastest Selling Rhododendrons!

Not all rhododendrons are created equal. The Nova Zembla Rhododendron is a queen in the spring garden and one of Nature Hill's fastest selling shrubs. Beautiful trusses of red flowers practically shine on this dense-growing, small evergreen.

The red flowers will appear in mid spring and the leaves stay green all year. This is a Rhodie that looks just as good in the sun and heat as it does in the cool shade. It is perhaps the most widely grown and successful red hybrid for harsh climates. If you have a tough spot but want some spring color try Nova Zembla Rhododendron.

Nova Zembla Rhododendron makes an excellent foundation plant or hedge. It is also very effective as an accent plant, especially in the spring when it lights up the garden. For a real show-stopper, try Nova Zembla lining a partially shaded driveway or separating a walkway in the front yard.

For best results, feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom and keep the roots cool with a thick layer of mulch. Keep the soil pH between 4.5 and 5.5 for best results. In addition to its good looks and easy care, this plant will attract butterflies and other wildlife to your garden.

The Nova Zembla is one of our fastest selling rhododendrons and there is always the likelihood that we will sell out! Don't miss out and order yours now!
