In this Rutgers Home Gardeners School @Home one-hour Lime-Haters (Ericaceous Plant) online course, learn about the small flowering perennials, shrubs, ground covers, and even trees that thrive in acidic soil.

Rutgers adjunct professor and nursey owner Steven Kristoph will discuss the most common and some of the lesser known acid-loving plants that can fill your garden with flowers, foliage, and autumn splendor. Examples include: Rhododendrons, Azaleas, Camellias, Heathers, Pieris, Blueberry, Cassiope, Eucryphia, Enkianthus, Fothergilla, Gaultheria, Styrax, and more. You will learn how to care for each specific plant including soil, water, and light requirements.

Once you learn about the beautiful and unique ornamental features of ericaceous plants, you’ll want to join the lime-haters club.
