Rhododendron 'Medusa' is a unique and eye-catching cultivar known for its intriguing and distinctive appearance. This evergreen shrub features long, narrow, and twisted leaves that resemble the writhing snakes of Medusa's mythological hair.
To successfully grow Rhododendron 'Medusa', provide it with a sheltered spot in partial shade to protect it from intense sunlight. The soil should be well-draining, acidic (pH 4.5-6), and rich in organic matter. Regular watering is crucial, ensuring the soil remains consistently moist but not waterlogged.
The height of Rhododendron 'Medusa' can vary, but it typically reaches a mature height of around 1-1.5mt, making it a compact and manageable shrub for smaller spaces or containers. Pruning is not typically necessary, but you can remove any dead or damaged branches to maintain its appearance.
Fertilize with a balanced rhododendron or azalea fertilizer in spring to promote healthy growth. With proper care, Rhododendron 'Medusa' will showcase its fascinating foliage, adding a touch of intrigue and mythical charm to your garden or landscape.
