Remarkable Rhododendrons & Their Cool Companions
In this, Tyler’s 75th anniversary year, the 2019 Plant Sale features our rhododendrons. Join us and shop a wide variety of rhododendrons, including several of the varieties from our collections, as well as complementary varieties of azaleas and other companion plants. As always, a large selection of plants will suit all pockets and tastes: from trees, shrubs and perennials, to annuals, herbs, and vegetables.
With a range of remarkable rhododendrons and companion plants comes a stunning array of delightful seasonal foliage, fantastic flower colors, and alluring aromas. Thanks to literally thousands of varieties of both rhododendrons and azaleas, there’s a variety for most garden types and soil conditions, just as long as they’re planted in zones 5 – 8. Did you know that certain varieties of Rhododendrons can grow up to 25 feet in height, while smaller, less vigorous varieties of up to 24 inches give just as good a seasonal show?
Preferring gentle shade and acidic, well-drained, humus-rich soils, most shallow-rooted rhododendrons and azaleas will benefit from good mulching and moist soils if they’re to avoid seasonal drought. When you’re shopping for rhododendrons and azaleas, choose the healthiest plants you can find, which means avoiding plants with wilting, yellowing foliage, and being particularly mindful of when they flower. Rhododendrons and azaleas thrive best when well watered and when planted anywhere from 24 inches to 6 feet apart depending on the sizes they’ll grow to at maturity. If you’re shopping Tyler’s Plant Sale for specific rhododendron or azalea varieties, be sure to ask one of our Plant Experts for advice about the best kind of plants for your garden.
