Design IdeasThis versatile Dwarf Rhododendron lends a decidedly formal character due to its compact habit. Plant in small groupings in front of taller shrubs. Line several for edging or as mini hedges to highlight plantings of perennials. Ideal for massing under the canopies of trees with other understory species. Ideal for small city gardens, courtyards and side yards, where space is a premium. The best plant for hiding an older Rhododendron's bare legs.

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.
