SKU
1022
Large trusses of showy soft pink flowers bloom heavily in spring. Dense habit and smaller size make this a versatile rhodie. Exceptional foundation plant. Use in protected beds and borders as background to add early spring color before perennials rise. Grows best in acidic soils with even moisture. Prefers cooler regions but some protection from winter wind is helpful. Evergreen shrub. Partial sun. Moderate growth to 5 feet tall and wide.

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.
