But, for sure, snowyy, you cannot plant those rhododendrons.
If you want similar evergreen, spring flowers and compact there are options. Camellias will tolerate it there. Dwarf photinias...little Robin and there are variegated ones....daphne odora aureo marginata, shrubby winter honeysuckles, etc.
There are some beautiful dwarf shrubs ...abelia Confetttii is a little stunner and hebes, as well as varieties of Coronilla ....that could replace your rhodos.
making soil acid is a very difficult process.....lime will always percolate into any acid-made areas and ericaceous plants will die.
You could use containers if you really want rhododendrons
