PLANT CARE ( Rhododendron Simsii )
|Rhododendron Simsii can survive temperatures as low as -35°F (-37°C).
|Most large-leaved varieties require dappled shade; avoid deep shade or full sun.
|Moderate humidity above 60%
|Water your rhododendron in the cool of the morning. Provide 1 inch of water per week.
Rhododendron Simsii once properly located in the planting bed, water thoroughly and cover with an organic mulch which will break down to supply nutrients as it decomposes. A pine bark covering applied at 2 inches (5 cm.) is thought to inhibit fungi that cause root rot. Do not mulch with peat moss, as it is difficult to rewet after it has dried out. Proper mulching will decrease the need for future rhododendron care. Use fertilizer for acid-loving plants, such as organic cottonseed meal. The organic material you have worked on in the soil previously will break down to provide some of the necessary nutrients.
