Details: RHODODENDRON MAXIMUM `INDEPENDENCE` Rosebay Rhododendron is a spectacular native to shaded, hillier spots in our area and differs from the large leaf Rhododendron that we are used to by its size, habit and time of bloom. 'Independence' is a more refined selection that takes on a big, rounded form with long, strap-like leaves and is slightly less open that the straight species. Its massive form is topped by big, dome-like buds at the top of each branch that open up to 6 weeks later than other large leaf Rhodies in late June forming massive globes of clear pink flowers that stay open and spectacular into the second week of July. 'Independence' is perfect for shady areas as a large specimen or grouped in wooded areas to form a massive, showy presence. 'Independence' is a big plant so give it space and know that native insects and landscape critters will thank you because they'll love this plant as much as you. Grow Tips Rhododendrons need cool, moist, well-drained organic soil and do best with winter protection. Protect from strong winter sun and wind.
