Azalea and Rhododendron Care Program
Azaleas and rhododendrons are beautiful additions to any landscape, providing bright flowers each spring that enhance the curb appeal of any property. With proper care and maintenance, azaleas and rhododendrons will provide your home with years of beauty.
An interesting fact, according to The American Rhododendron Society, “all azaleas are rhododendron, but not all rhododendron are azaleas” (Source: www.rhododendron.org). Because of that, the care for both plants is the same.
At LawnAmerica, Inc., we offer a 2-Step Azalea and Rhododendron Care Program that is designed to provide the necessary care to keep your azaleas and rhododendron performing their best.
The first application of LawnAmerica's 2-Step Azalea and Rhododendron Program is a liquid application of a dormant oil and a systemic insecticide. The combination of these two products provide both foliage protection and prevent lace bug damage by being absorbed by the root system.
The second application of LawnAmerica's 2- Step Azalea and Rhododendron Program is a granular application of:
- Slow-release granular fertilizer
- Granular sulfur to help lower pH
- Granular organic fertilizer
- Granular systemic insecticide
The combination of these products applied from mid-May through June, after the blooms are finished, will provide the necessary nutrients to your azaleas and help to set the stage for a beautiful spring the following year.
Photinia Care Program
Photinia, a common shrub in the area, belongs to the rosaceous family. Several different species of Photinia are grown for landscaping—including Photinia serrulata, Photinia glabra and Photinia x fraseri, which is a hybrid. Due to its bright red, immature foliage, Photinia x fraseri is the most popular species being grown today. It is more commonly known as the "red tip." While this shrub is fast-growing and beautiful, they are susceptible to leaf spotting. LawnAmerica, Inc. offers effective services through our Photinia Program, which is aimed at controlling leaf spots on Photinias.
Our Photinia Program provides three timely applications of a fungicide which will help combat and prevent leaf spotting. The first application is applied in late March or early April at bud-break, and the following applications would be applied at regular, four-week intervals.
