Design IdeasThis white-flowering Rhodie is smallish and rounded; a perfect middle-of-the-border flowering shrub. Very dark foliage means it can be used as contrast for lighter variegated plants. Small stature is always a natural under oaks and older coniferous trees. Also perfect in the woodland understory and in wild gardens. Prim shape lends itself to foundation plantings, and compact form is suited to tidy entry plantings.
Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Provide well drained soil, rich in organic matter. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch.Pruning time: spring after flowering.
