Plant details

Most rhododendrons enjoy light or partial sheltered shade, not just to avoid late frost damage, but also because exposure to full sun in late spring and early summer can seriously scorch their blooms. This applies particularly to yellow-flowered hybrids fortunately, because they are some of the best for illuminating shady corners of the garden and spaces between other shrubs. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
