The Bloombux® & Bloombux® Magenta - botanical name Rhododendron micranthum 'Microhirs 3' & 'Microhirs 9' - belongs to the dwarf shrubs. Like Buxus, the Bloombux® is hardy and is suitable as a pot plant or as a hedge or surface planting in the garden. Those who put the Bloombux® in their garden as an alternative to Buxus benefit from a low growth height of up to 70 centimetres. This makes maintenance of the Bloombux® simple and uncomplicated.
The Bloombux® makes relatively few demands on location and soil quality. Even calcareous soil is no problem for the Bloombux®; however, the soil must be airy. Another characteristic of the Bloombux® is its unique floral display in early summer. In the peak season, you can look forward to large flowers with a diameter of up to 8 cm. This makes the Bloombux® a feast for your garden.
