Many species within our extensive selection of large-flowered rhododendrons and Yakushimanum hybrids are available on a lime-tolerant rootstock.
As opposed to acid-loving classic rhododendrons, which require a pH between 4.2 and 5.5, these plants can be applied for multiple purposes. They thrive in soil types with a pH between 4.5 and 6.5. An added advantage of plants which have been bred on lime-tolerant rootstock is that they are stronger. The sales team can give you more information about types and sizes.
