Several varieties of rhododendrons started blooming in mid-June in my garden. These are already mature plants, they are 14 - 10 years old.
It is a miracle of colors and shades. Happiness for pollinators of all kinds. A little later, azaleas will begin blooming.
All plants are bred and grown in the Finnish nursery 'Mustila', so they are very frost resistant and winter well in the garden without shelter.
Let's take a look at the June flowering.
Rhododendron hybrid 'Pekka'
Rhododendron hybrid 'Helsinki university'
Rhododendron hybrid 'Haaga'
Rhododendron catawbiense 'Grandiflorum'
Rhododendron hybrid 'Northern daughter'
Rhododendron hybrid 'Piter Tigersted'
These beauties delight me from mid-June to today. In the morning I watch which rhododendron blooms, which one opens its buds. There are already many photos, it is difficult to choose to show you the beauty of these plants.
Azaleas started blooming as well, I have 2 frost-resistant varieties: Mandarin Light (red) and Northern Light white-lemon).
Do you grow these bushes? What varieties do you grow? Which one of mine do you like best?
