|Design Ideas||This 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.|
|Companion Plants||Hydrangea (Hydrangea); Azalea (Azalea); Astilbe (Astilbe); Bleeding Heart (Dicentra); Coral Bells (Heuchera)|
|Care||Provide organically rich, well-drained, acidic soil. Apply a thick layer of mulch to keep roots cool, avoiding the crown. Avoid harsh afternoon sun exposures and shelter from drying winter winds. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom.|
