Furthermore, the INKARHO® Dufthecke offers various possibilities for individual design, since it is particularly tolerant to pruning, for example. That is why you can use the INKARHO® Dufthecke also ideally as an individual plant outdoors or alternatively in a pot or tub. Have you ever heard that normal rhododendrons are ideal hedge plants?
