Springtime with Rhododendrons blooming in the landscape is a joyful experience. This variety gives you plenty of pretty "flower candy" in late springtime.
End your Rhododendron flowering season with Boursault Rhododendron (Rhododendron 'Catawbiense Boursault'). This low-maintenance variety features brilliant, clear blue-violet petals daubed with brick reddish or pale brown markings.
These are simply flower factories in the late mid-season of Rhododendron flowering. You just can't miss the way these bright violet buds open to a clear lavender-blue blooms!
You'll also love the way the round-shaped trusses are held prominently above the leathery leaves. Each eye-popping cluster usually contains about 17 flowers.
Rely on this elegant Rhododendron year-long. One of the "Ironsides" series, this is a reliable evergreen plant that gives your garden structure in wintertime, and a fabulous color display in spring.
In time, it will grow into a dense, upright and spreading flowering landscape asset. They'll perform beautifully in both cold climates, sun and high heat with the right light and soil conditions.
Our growers take special pride in both caring for these wonderful plants in the nursery, and in expertly packing them for shipment direct to your door.
Don't miss the popular Boursault Rhododendron. Order yours today!
With their irresistible spring blooms, Boursault is a superstar accent border shrub. Draw the eye along your partially shaded garden path with a long, winding row of them.
Mix in with other Rhododendron varieties that bloom a bit earlier to extend your glorious season of bloom. Try the early blooming PJM series as a counterpoint to kick the season off. They also partner beautifully with Azaleas, as well.
Boursault is a great selection to use in foundation plantings, but give it enough room to make a statement. Try it at the corner of your house and allow them to fill in to their full height and width to amaze your neighborhood.
People will slow down in their car to get a good look. Get the most from your space by adding a flagstone patio nearby, complete with comfy seating.
Use behind your patio to give you a welcome private retreat. You can even create a special Garden Room using a series of these as "living walls" to surround all sides of your space.
You'll have to count the hummingbirds that visit your shrubs! With their preferred funnel-shaped blooms, Boursault should be a staple in bird and butterfly friendly gardens.
Plant multiple shrubs to fill a wide, open area with their spreading habit. Massed plantings grow into an incredible feature! Use a zigzagging planting pattern spaced 4 feet apart for faster results. Measure from the center of one to the center of the next.
Plant in a spot where they will receive morning sun and part shade in the afternoon. Acidic soils with a low pH between 4.5 to 6 and a high concentration of organic materials are best. Rhododendrons also require very well-drained soil.
If you have clay soils or poor drainage, consider creating a raised bed with a heaped mound of native soil from another part of your yard.
You can incorporate several handfuls of compost, and acidic soil conditioner, but try not to overdo it. The root system should spread wide and grow down into your unamended native soil, after all.
