How to grow Rhododendron vireya "Scented Sun"
“Scented Sun” is a variety of Rhododendron that features large and showy trusses of scented, yellow flowers in late spring. It is reasonably fast growing with an erect growth habit, bearing lush, dark green leaves that complement the flowers nicely. This evergreen shrub typically grows to 1.2 m tall and the same wide, performing best when grown in full sun or partial shade on a well-drained, sheltered site. It is tolerant of frosts but should be protected from harsh frosts when young. When fertilising, avoid using lime as this will stunt or even kill plants. “Scented Sun” is a great choice for adding to a mixed planting, planting as a backdrop for smaller plants, or growing as a specimen.
