Plant Answer Line Question
Aside from 'Christmas Cheer,' are there types of Rhododendrons that have winter flowers and flourish here? I am imagining planting a couple in an island beneath some hybrid elm trees, so they would be in part shade. I have plenty of irrigation, and there is a slight slope to the location.
Another variety which is early to bloom is 'Nobleanum.' American Rhododendron Society's blog has a post by a Pacific Northwest author who lists several others:
- 'Bo Peep'
- 'Snow Lady'
- R. mucronulatum 'Cornell Pink'
- R. dauricum
- R. moupinense
- R. strigillosum
One can also search the American Rhododendron Society site for varieties of Rhododendron which meet various criteria, including bloom time.
Meerkerk Gardens on Whidbey Island lists rhododendrons by month of bloom.
