"Rhododendrons and Trees: Towards A More Floriferous Co-existence"
by Ted Kipping
We think of rhododendrons and azaleas as "shade plants". These shrubs, which can flower heavily need w-a-y more light than most home gardeners think to give them. Minimally, they should be given at least morning light. Come find out ways to improve the light situation for your flowering specimens while retaining your trees. Join us for a presentation of "Rhododendrons & Trees: Towards A More Floriferous Co-existence". Ted has spoken to us in the past and is an informative and entertaining speaker, plus a wonderful photographer. Please come to this great presentation.
