Maintenance Notes

May be pruned selectively as needed - avoid habitual pruning or cutting back.

Like other rhododendron, Black Hat requires acidic, well-drained soils. 

Uses Notes

Makes a beautiful specimen, or an elegant statement as a mass planting in the landscape. Quite tolerant of shade, which makes it a nice option for planting near the house.
