Rhododendrons and azaleas die in my soil. I have a camellia. Ever year it forms nice fat buds.... and then the squirrel eats them. Its between a Magnolia soulangeana "Dawn" and a Magnolia grandiflora "Exmouth". Its currently obstructing my view(from the living room) of the old hellebore bed. I think its going to get a major chop soon. I think the phlomis fruticosa is for the chop too. Its never really done well where it is. too much shade and not good enough soil. A cutting i gave a friend grew to three times the size of the parent plant in two years, and always looks a lot better.
I'm off to do a bit of shopping now.
