Finnish Rhododendron Collection

Finnish Rhododendron Collection

The Finnish Rhododendron Collection - new varieties grown by Kristian Theqvist in Finland. Thanks to using the most resistant rhododendrons they are characterized by high frost resistance (between -26°C and -32°C) and attractive colors. They are perfectly adapted to a cooler climate. The collection is open and will be enlarged annually with new varieties.

A short paper by FloraCulture International covering the varieties from the new collection can be read here!
