Rhododendron x 'Sneezy' (H-2)
|Description||A dense-growing evergreen shrub valued for its large trusses of showy, soft pink flowers with darker pink margins and a dark red blotch on each upper petal. Prefers cooler regions but some protection from winter wind is helpful. Wonderful for use as a container specimen, accent plant, a flowering hedge, or in mass plantings.|

|Watering||Keep soil moist, but not soggy.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 4 ft. tall and wide.|
|Special Features||Compact Form|
|Flower Attributes||Showy Flowers|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Hedge|
|Design Ideas||Although 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.|
|Companion Plants||Hydrangea (Hydrangea); Azalea (Azalea); Astilbe (Astilbe); Bleeding Heart (Dicentra); Coral Bells (Heuchera)|
|Care||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.|
|Lore||Rhododendron was named and classified by Linnaeus who named it from the Greek for rose tree.|
