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.
