Another of the brand new Southgate Rhododendrons from the Southern Living Plant Collection, the Southgates’ heat tolerance expands traditional Rhododendron territory into the Deep South. The Brandi Rhododendron sports magenta pink buds that bloom to an eye-catching white and fuschia pink in spring. Southgate Rhododendrons have a slow growth rate and will stay compact at a manageable 4 x 4ft leaving maintenance as a thing of the past. Brandi will be at her happiest and healthiest when planted in well-drained garden soil and in part shade to full shade sun exposure. Fertilize yearly in Spring with a slow-release balanced fertilizer.
Plant Your Southgate Brandi Rhododendron 2.5-3 feet apart from plant center to plant center. Otherwise, space plants 4 feet for solid hedges; 6 feet or more for space between plants.

These blossoms are far more beautiful than any pictures of them. Seeing Jim Putnam feature Plants By Mail on his Horttube channel on youtube gave me the confidence to order from them also. I was NOT disappointed! Their packaging was superb. The plant was well-rooted without being rootbound, foliage fresh and healthy, and the trunk indicated a good age for the plant. I am already looking at more plants to order, especially because the shipping rates are so reasonable. Thanks Plants By Mail!
