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
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.
HISTORY
Lore Rhododendron was named and classified by Linnaeus who named it from the Greek for rose tree.
