Product Details

Product Details

A hybrid named after the cofounder of this establishment, which gives you an idea how we feel about it. Our specimen plant (shown in photo) is close to 30 years old and has never missed a year of bloom. Its deep pink buds mature to the palest of pinks, very ruffled. Plants retain the free-flowering habit and the felty indumentum (on the under side of the leaves) of R. yakusimanum, but their form is closer to that of the other parent, R. smirnowii.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

Small, but alive

Global Villager from Millburn NJ

WFF is great at bulbs, but I have had difficulty with plants. This Jane Grant Rhododendron sure looks good in the photos and I live in NJ so you would think it would grow well, but this plant arrived very small and not looking particularly strong. It is still alive a couple of years later, but has only grown a bit. Probably 15 inches high after two years.

Rhododendrons and Azaleas grow in full sun or partial shade in the North, but prefer partial shade or shade in the South and in warm inland areas of the West. They require moisture-retentive but well-drained soil that is on the acidic side. Turn a healthy layer of organic matter into the soil before planting. Gardeners in the Deep South and West who have heavy clay soil should plant Rhododendrons so that the top of the root ball stands several inches above the surrounding soil, then push prepared soil around and just over the root ball to form a mound. Mulch after planting to keep roots cool and moist.

Removing spent flowers (tedious but rewarding work on large specimens) makes for a better show the following spring; take care when removing flowers not to damage new buds at the base of the old flower stems. Prune as needed after bloom, cutting just above a set of leaves.

Deciduous and evergreen Rhododendrons are ideal for shrub borders, mixed perennial and shrub borders, and foundation plantings.

Not recommended for desert areas.
