Rhododendron occidentale 'Select'

Rhododendron occidentale 'Select' | Deciduous Azaleas

Rhododendron occidentale 'Select'

Price: $33.75

Size: 8-12 inch

Description

Growth Habit: twiggy shrub

USDA Zone: 5b
Exposure: filtered to full sun
Growing Conditions: evenly moist, well drained acidic soils
Comments: This form was selected from a group of seedlings as it proved to have stronger branching resulting in a sturdier plant. The leaves are also more lustrous. Beyond that it is the same as our native western azalea. Found in large thickets in the coast range of Oregon and Northern California, its delicious sweet scent can fill the valleys in spring and summer. The clusters of flowers can range from near white to varying shades of pink and sometimes even red. The western azalea was an early contributor in the development of the Exbury azaleas in England.
