Design IdeasA 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.
