Rhododendron Dora Amateis
Rhododendron hybride Dora Amateis
The Rhododendron Dora Amateis is an evergreen shrub, half-dwarf variety, it is compact and vigorous, it will not exceed the height of approximately 1 m. Its evergreen foliage gives it a lush appearance even when the flowers aren't blooming, while its delicate pale pink bud flowers bloom pure white. This creates a nice contrast with its deep green leaves. This shrub blooms between mid-April and May, making it a wonderful addition to gardens during the spring months. In addition, this resistant shrub is able to withstand negative temperatures of -26 °C!
When planting the Rhododendron Dora Amaties, there are a few points to consider. First, it needs acidic soil to thrive; you can use heather potting soil, peat, or compost to achieve this if necessary. Second, it should be placed in a partially shaded area so that it can receive enough sunlight without being overexposed. It does well when planted alongside other acid-loving shrubs, such as azaleas, Japanese maples or Pieris japonica.
To care for your Rhododendrons Dora Amaties once planted in your garden, prune them lightly if necessary after flowering to maintain their shape and encourage bushier growth. Also, be sure to water them regularly during dry spells, making sure the soil isn't soggy after watering! Finally, feed your plants every two weeks during the growing and flowering season with an appropriate fertilizer.
In summary, Rhododendron Dora Amaties is an ideal choice for creating attractive beds of heathland plants. Due to its small size, it is perfect for embellishing a rock garden or simply being planted in a nice big pot on the terrace, balcony or patio.
