Such beauty in my garden from the end of May to the middle of June every year! I never get tired of admiring the flowering of my rhododendrons. They are already 10-12 years old and every year there are more and more of their flowers. These are evergreen rhododendrons and deciduous azaleas. All varieties are bred in Finland, in the Mustila nursery. A few years ago I was in this nursery and saw a variety of plants. They do a great job in the nursery. All the plants I have purchased are hardy in my 5a zone.
I care for and treat my plants, I always carefully examine them, especially after flowering is over. After the faded flowers, young leaves appear, which should be healthy. I always remove faded flowers. In autumn, I sprinkle acidic fertilizers, potassium and phosphorus under the roots of plants, I water very often before the onset of winter. Sometimes rain helps me with watering :)
If you grow rhododendrons and azaleas, tell about your experience. Thank you.
