The sensational new Southgate Rhododendrons thrive in the southern heat, while also performing just as tremendously in traditional Rhododendron areas. The Southgate Divine Rhododendron has blushing pink buds that open up to porcelain white blooms with sangria purple specks in the center. These beauties have a slow growth rate and will stay compact at only 4 x 4ft. The Divine performs ideally when planted in well-drained garden soil and in part to full shade. A yearly fertilizing with a slow-release fertilizer in early spring will keep this shrub loaded with blooms.
