Sizing guide
Rhododendron 'Mount Everest' is a stunning hybrid rhododendron cultivar that is known for its large, pure white flowers. An evergreen shrub that can grow to a height of 1.8 to 3 meters and spread of 1.8 to 2.4 meters. It has large, leathery, dark green leaves that provide an attractive backdrop for its striking flowers.
The standout feature of Rhododendron 'Mount Everest' is its abundant, pure white flowers. The blossoms are large and bell-shaped, often measuring around 10 centimeters across. They typically appear in late spring to early summer, creating a magnificent display against the dark green foliage.
This rhododendron variety thrives in a cool and moist environment. It prefers partial shade to filtered sunlight, as direct exposure to intense sunlight can scorch the leaves. It requires well-drained, acidic soil with a pH between 4.5 and 6.0. Regular watering is necessary to maintain adequate soil moisture.
Proper care includes regular watering to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Applying a layer of mulch around the base of the plant helps to retain soil moisture and inhibit weed growth. Pruning is generally not required, but you can remove any dead or diseased branches as needed.
