|Design Ideas||A fiery rhodie for interest to evergreen forested settings. Use it to draw the eye deep into a spring garden. Save for high profile foundation planting beneath windows where the flowers will sit right at the sill for indoor and outdoor viewing. Close up locations to outdoor living spaces bring the rose-like flowers up close. A beauty in mixed shrub borders or to add zest among cool colored perennials.|

|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||Rhododendrons are largely found in the Himalayas and other mountains of Asia as well as some species in temperate North America.|
