About Plant Sizes:
All Rhododendrons grow to different heights in their lifetime, and so do they start their lives growing at different heights. We do our best to match price with age of your plant. The options that are given are for plant size which helps in determining the maturity, and to some degree the age of your plant. Some plants that grow to only three feet will only be two feet tall in a five gallon contain, however the root system will be completely developed in this container. We have created the guide below to help you understand what you will be receiving when you order this size plant. If we are out of the size that you have purchased, we may upgrade you to one size larger at no additional cost to you.
