Design IdeasThe compact habit of this versatile Dwarf Rhododendron lends a decidedly formal character to the garden. Plant in small groupings in front of taller shrubs. Line them up for edging or as mini hedges to highlight plantings of perennials. Ideal for massing under the canopies of trees with other understory species. Ideal for small city gardens, courtyards and side yards where space is a premium. The best plant for hiding bare legs of older Rhododendrons.
Care Information
