White Rhododendron


What is White Rhododendron

Famous for their huge clusters of vibrant white flowers each and every spring, the White Rhododendron is second to none. In fact, you get huge clusters of 8 to 10 flowers each…and the best part? They’re super easy to grow.

The National Arbor Day Foundation calls it one of America’s most beautiful plants for a reason. From its drought tolerance (meaning no watering for you) to its adaptability in nearly any soil type, the White Rhododendron takes the guesswork out of growing.

Your new Rhododendrons will complement any area with its explosion of white flowers. Set against a backdrop of glossy, leather-like foliage, this shrub’s round growth habit makes it ideal to plant in groupings with the promise of stunning color in the spring months.

Our White Rhododendrons are shipped in large 1 and 3-gallon containers. So, unlike other big-box retailers or local nurseries, you receive an established and mature-sized plant.

Many of our competitors only offer smaller sizes, which will take years to reach an appealing height. But you reap the rewards of healthy roots and better-developed branching right away.

How to Grow and Care for White Rhododendron

White Rhododendron (Rhododendron catawbiense Album) Growing Requirements

Hardiness zone 4-8 outdoors


Plant your White Rhododendron in an area that receives full to partial sunlight (3 to 6 hours of sunlight) and in well-drained soil.

Dig a hole that’s about three times the size of your shrub’s rootball, place your shrub, backfill the soil, and water to settle the roots.


Simply check your surrounding soil about 3 inches down – if the soil is dry here, it’s time to water your plant.


If you notice slower growth, feed with a well-balanced blend after blooms have dropped in the summer.
