Product information "Japanese Azalea 'Diamant Rot'®"

The flowers of Rhododendron obtusum 'Diamant Rot'® shine in a bright red colour. They open starting in mid-May and appear in such a large amount that they transform the entire plant into a red sea of flowers.
Beautiful all year round

Even after the flowering period, the Japanese Azalea 'Diamant Rot'® is always pretty to look at. It grows very dense and compact and only reaches a height of 30 to 40 cm. The wintergreen foliage shines in a fresh, green colour and thus adds beautiful splashes of colour during the winter.
Needs acidic soil!

Like most rhododendrons and azaleas, 'Diamant Rot'® needs an acidic garden soil. A pH in the range of 4.5 to 5.5 is best suited. If the soil is too alkaline, the plants form pale, yellow leaves. To make your garden soil more acidic, you can add peat or rhododendron soil before planting.
Great for planters

With its compact habit, beautiful foliage and red flowers, Rhododendron obtusum 'Diamant Rot'® is a decorative and valuable container plant. You can use it to decorate entrance areas, courtyards, terraces and balconies. When planting in a container make sure that an acidic substrate, such as rhododendron soil, is used.
Ideal for small gardens

But even in the garden you can use the compact diamond azaleas versatile. With their flat, broad habit they look best in the foreground of flowerbeds. They thrive in the sun and partial shade and can be combined, for example, with lavender heather, higher rhododendron, Skimmia, hostas and perennial grasses such as the evergreen sedges (Carex).
