It is said that rhododendrons differ in their requirements for shade. Some grow vigorously on the full sun, some need partial shade for majority of day.
My question is - what type is Rhododendron Albert Schweitzer?



Hi Dapled shade is best this one is a good strong variety and can take the hard winters after a couple of years needs space to grow just so you know

I grew this a couple of years ago (two houses ago) a name you cant forget I think red / pink ??

All rhododendrons prefer dappled shade as Gg says this one is very hardy and gets quite big 1.8 metres in ten years. Pink with a red blotch and flowers in May.

Will tolerate full sun, but prefers dappled shade, this one, Katarina.

Albert Schweitzer was after shor ceremony planted in a dappled shade today in the afternoon. Thank you very much Gg, Moongrower and Bamboo.
I was just curious, as I thought the same about all rhododendrons. But Bamboo said a week ago that my Horizon Monarch could have problems because it is the one which likes sun and mine is in the shade. So I was interested how about AS. Thank you very much to all of you.
