Design IdeasAlthough this Rhododendron looks beautiful anywhere in the landscape, its size and showy coloring make it perfect for the middle to back of the border. Ideal with other acid-loving shrubs along foundations of the house or the base of a fence. Great background for virtually all perennials. Also works well to fill space beneath a large shade tree. A good backgrounder behind a smaller accent tree.
