|Design Ideas||This big beautiful rhododendron is most at home in acidic soils under the canopies of ancient conifers on forest-like homesites. Its clusters of pink blossoms are cool and neutral, blending with other soft hues for a romantic shade garden. Tall enough to use along fence lines or in side yards to block views. Line up several for a sound-absorbing barrier or privacy screen. The ideal plant for integrating into preexisting forest environments, particularly in the Pacific Northwest.|
|Companion Plants||Lily of the Valley Shrub (Pieris); Astilbe (Astilbe); Coral Bells (Heuchera); Azalea (Azalea); Gardenia (Gardenia); Camellia (Camellia)|
|Care||Provide well-drained soil, rich in organic matter. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch.|
