DANDY MAN COLOR WHEEL® Rhododendron

Zone: 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 Exposure: Full Sun, Part Sun Height: 4-8' Width/Spread: 4-8'

Enjoy a changing palette of color with durable Dandy Man Color Wheel rhododendron. Deep red buds begin to appear in late spring, opening to reveal ruffled pink blooms. Those age to crisp white, creating the effect of three different colors at once. Handsome evergreen foliage, excellent disease resistance, and heat tolerance make this NCSU hybrid an adaptable, widely usable broadleaf evergreen.

Light: Will perform well in a range of sun exposures – from all day sun and shade in northern climates and shady spots in the south. Flowers well in shady spots!

Soil: Prefers very fertile acidic soils that stay evenly moist, but with good drainage.

Water: Likes to be kept on the moist side, but not soggy.

Fertilizing: Apply compost to the soil surface every season, all rhododendrons benefit from high organic matter.

Pruning: Pruning isn’t recommended. Flowers form on old wood, so pruning risks blooms. It also has the best habit when allowed to grow naturally.
