|Design Ideas||This beautiful white Rhodie is most versatile because it is but four feet tall and spreads like a shrubby groundcover. Most at home in acidic soils under the canopies of ancient conifers. Its clusters of white are perfectly neutral, blending with other vibrant hues of woodland flowers for a romantic shade garden. Can be used along fence lines or spotted into such cramped spaces as side yards, entries and courtyards. Small enough to make a non-encroaching foundation plant in the front yard or in shaded nooks, where the white flowers stand out.|
|Companion Plants||Hydrangea (Hydrangea); Azalea (Azalea); Lily of the Valley (Pieris); Bleeding Heart (Dicentra); Coral Bells (Heuchera)|
|Care||Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Provide well drained soil, rich in organic matter. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch.|
|Lore||Rhododendron was named and classified by Linnaeus who named it from the Greek for rose tree. This genus also contains shrubs commonly called azaleas within its 800 Rhododendron species and thousands of hybrids.|
