Design IdeasA fiery hot rhodie can be seen from a long way off to add depth and 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 exotic colors to close range. A beauty in mixed shrub borders or to add zest among cool colored perennials.

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.
