Rhododendrons and Azalea are usually trouble free in growing, provided care is taken in the initial planting. Their main requirements are a LIME-FREE soil, plenty of water and some shelter from scorching sun and wind.
INKARHO, the super rhododendron, are the new generation of rhododendron, proving to be better and hardier and will grow in all types of soil, even heavy clay and loam soils. Not only hardy and attractive, but the variety is huge. The secret lies in the rhododendron rootstock which are grafted, making the Inkarho extremely lime-tolerant and gives a strong root system.
