Be sure to use a well drained soil medium when planting any Rhododendron as they prefer fall planting with less watering than you might think. In NC our soil is clay so we prefer to use pine bark soil conditioner when planting Camellia, Rhododendron, Mountain Laurel, and Azalea.
Milky Way Rhododendron
Rhododendron diversipilosum 'Milky Way'
Milky way is interesting in that it has very small leaves just like Purple Gem Rhododendron and most azalea plants. Full Description coming soon...
