Rododendron - růžový kultivarRhododendrons

In every decorative garden, Rhododendrons are among the most beautiful things any owner could wish for. With their deep-green leaf colour and striking colours of the flowers, they create splendorous colourful compositions in every orchard. On these pages, we would like to share some information with You – how to grow Rhododendrons, how to approach their propagation; we will give You advices on pests and diseases. Last but not least, you may perhaps find a few hands-on advices on Rhododendron cultivation.
Botanical name Rhododendron ( from greek Rhodos – rosy, and Dendron – tree) was given to this ravishing group of ornamental flowering shrubs by Swedish botanist Linné. This botanist described in detail also Rhododendron’s close relative – Azalea. Over the years, with the increasing numbers of Rhododendron and Azalea species, it was shown that Rhododendron and Azalea genera share common characteristics and it is not appropriate to separate them. Common gardener terminology is, however, constantly „sinful“ towards botanical naming, splitting these beautiful decorative flowers into two species – Azaleas and Rhododendrons – with remarkable stubborness.
