Design IdeasThis 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.
