Design IdeasThis rugged little fellow promises to perform even where the climate is on the warm side for most Rhododendron. An excellent foundation shrub that won't exceed five feet tall; a natural for covering up unsightly stemwalls, footings and utilities. Ideal as a natural barrier hedge in front yards. Good choice for fence lines. Also works well planted singly or in groups in larger planters. Adds life to otherwise dull evergreen plantings and thrives in the acid soils under high-canopied conifers.

Water deeply, regularly in the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Apply an acid fertilizer after bloom.
