Ericaceous plants are often referred to as lime-hating or acid-loving plants. The most commonly grown ericaceous plants are azaleas, camellias and rhododendrons. These plants thrive in a low lime environment (pH 4.5 to 5.5). If they are grown in soil where the pH is too high (alkaline), they produce poor growth, few flowers and the leaves tend to become yellowish in colour.
