Pruning: An Illustrated Guide: Foolproof Methods for Shaping and Trimming Trees, Shrubs, Vines, and More

Lifelong gardener Judy Lowe gives you the knowledge to make the right cut the first time.

 

“Pruning panic” is an all-too-familiar feeling among even experienced gardeners, but it’s especially prevalent among those of us who are new to the practice. In Pruning: An Illustrated Guide, award-winning gardening writer Judy Lowe imparts over two decades of expertise, focusing on the most common backyard pruning needs for the most commonly grown landscape plants. From trees and shrubs to hydrangeas, azaleas, roses, and other perennials, Lowe takes an in-depth approach to all the pruning essentials. Throughout the book, her advice is accompanied by brilliantly detailed step-by-step line drawings that clearly demonstrate where and how to make precise, effective cuts. Lowe removes all intimidation from the pruning process: beyond the craft itself, you’ll gain an understanding of the basic science behind plant growth, why plants need pruning, when they’ll need it, and how pruning techniques can vary between plant species. So the next time you pick up a pruning saw or a pair of loppers, panic will be the furthest thing from your mind—and from your garden.

BULK x Royal Azalea, Rhododendron schlippenbachii, Seeds – Fragrant Pink Flowers – By MySeeds.Co (00150 Seeds – 150 Seeds – Pkt. Size)

Other Names: Royal Azalea
Zone: 4 to 9
Growth Rate: Slow
Plant Type: Deciduous Flowering Shrub
Family: Ericaceae
Native Range: China, Japan, and Korea
Height: 6 to 8 feet
Spread: 6 to 8 feet
Shape: Upright rounded shrub
Bloom Time: April – May
Bloom Color: White tinged with pink
Flower/Fruit: Fragrant 3 1/2 inch pale pink flowers
Sun: Part Shade
Fall Color: Shade of yellow, orange or crimson.
Drought Tolerance: Low
Water: Medium
Maintenance: Medium
Site Requirements/ Soil Tolerances: Best grown in acidic, humusy, organically rich, medium moisture, moisture retentive but well drained soils in part shade. Prefers a sun dappled or high open shade. Tolerates a fair amount of sun in cool northern summers, but leaves may scorch in hot afternoon sun. Plant in a location protected from strong winter winds. Good soil drainage is essential (doesn’t like “wet feet”). Poor drainage inevitably leads to root rot, therefore raised beds/plantings should be considered in heavy clay soils. Shallow, fibrous root systems (do not cultivate around plants) will benefit greatly from a mulch (e.g., wood chips, bark or pine needles) to help retain moisture and stabilize soil temperatures. Roots must never be allowed to dry out. Acidify soils as needed. This species reportedly tolerates more neutral soils than most azaleas.

Culture: Mulch annually with a loose material like pine needles, bark, or chopped oak leaves. Clip off spent flower clusters immediately after bloom as practicable.
Uses: Bonsai, Mass, group or specimen. Shrub borders, mixed borders, woodland gardens and shade gardens. Also effective in foundation plantings or as a hedge.

Sowing Rhododendron schlippenbachii Seeds:
The seeds of Royal Azalea are extremely tiny. Wear your glasses and don’t breath while handling. Sow indoors.
For best results, please follow the instructions in the order provided.
Germination: Surface Sow at 55° to 64°F in acidic potting mix or peat.

Product Features

  • Fragrant Flowers, Fall Color, Cold Tolerant, Bonsai
  • Royal azalea has large, fragrant pink blooms in spring. This large-leaved azalea also has purple-hued foliage in spring, turning velvet green in summer, and finally fading to yellow in autumn. Noteworthy characteristics: Good fall color if grown in sun and moist soil. Royal Azalea is an upright, densely branched, deciduous shrub that is native to Korea, Manchuria and Japan. It typically grows to 4 to 6 feet tall (sometimes to as much as 15 feet tall). There are 3 to 6 large, funnel shaped flowers per inflorescence. Flower color ranges from pale pink to rose-pink or white, spotted red-brown on the 3 upper lobes. Flowers can be almost 3 1/2 inches across. The fragrant flowers bloom in clusters at the branch ends in April to May as the leaves emerge. The leaves are arranged in distinctive whorls of 5 at the end of the branchlets. Autumn foliage turns attractive shades of yellow, orange or crimson. The plant is hardy to -25°F (-32°C), slow growing to 4 feet in 10 years. It prefers a less acid soil than most rhododendrons.
  • This species was introduced to the west when it was discovered in Korea in 1854 by a Russian naval officer, Baron von Schlippenbach, for whom it is named. Its natural range extends from Korea into bordering parts of Manchuria and Russia. It is one of the commonest shrubs in Korea, being the dominant undergrowth plant in some forests. During June, these areas are transformed into vast drifts of pink. According to Cox, “Rhododendron schlippenbachii is one of the finest azalea species, with attractive foliage, good autumn color and large handsome flowers.”
