Buy Black Hat® Rhododendron online. Black Hat® Rhododendron is yet another outstanding introduction by Dr. Tom Ranney at NCSU, and it's not going to disappoint! Black Hat® Rhododendron is a small-leaved, compact shrub that has triploid flowers. This means that the blooms that are produced are going to last far longer than other cultivars annd selections of rhodies. The leaves are dark green and evergreen, and in colder temperatures they turn a delicious purple-black color, and you'll see where this awesome shade plant gets its name.

BLACK HAT® RHODODENDRON Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips

Rhododendrons are fairly easy to grow and adapt to most conditions, however they prefer slightly acidic and well drained soils. Feed once a year with a slow release fertilizer.
