About Southgate® Grace™ Rhododendron

For gardeners in the deep south, Rhododendrons have traditionally been only a pipe dream. However, the new Southgate Rhododendrons from the Southern Living Plant Collection are heat tolerant enough to withstand the dog days of the southern summer. The Southgate Grace Rhododendron has large magenta buds that open to cotton white blooms with mulberry purple spots on in the inside. These blooms sit atop gorgeous emerald green elongated leaves that provide the perfect backdrop for the multitudes of breathtaking blossoms. The Southgates have a slow growth rate that will remain compact and cap out at a very manageable 4 x 4ft. Grace will flourish when planted in well-drained garden soil and in part to full shade. Fertilize once yearly with a slow-release fertilizer and watch as this bloomer serenades the landscape with color all season long.

Planting Instructions

  • water before planting
  • plant in Part Sun to Shade
  • dig hole 3X the width of pot,
  • backfill and plant 1″-2″ above soil level
  • water and add more soil if needed
  • mulch plants
  • fertilize in early spring with a slow-release fertilizer

How to Space Your Southgate Grace Rhododendron
