Rhododendrons thrive in conditions that have cooler day and night time temperatures. Therefore, when growing in ‘warmer’ climates, i.e. those with a lower altitude and warmer winters (top half North Island and some coastal areas), you’ll have happier plants if you follow these pointers.
We are gradually building up a knowledge as to which varieties do better in the above conditions. You can filter a search for the varieties that we consider will tolerate warmer climates the best. These same varieties will grow in cooler climates as well, with the exception of those varieties we have pointed out that need protection from frosts. If in doubt, discuss your selection with us.
