Newbie seeks planting location advice Purpureum Elegans
I bought a small evergreen rhododendron from the supermarket. I don't think rhododendrons often do that well in my area but I couldn't resist.
Can someone suggest which of the following might be the best location?
a) against north side of house
b) out on east lawn of house under tall spruce tree with quite high lower branches. Also partly shaded by some deciduous trees. Soil seems best here (loosest)
c) out on north lawn of house under a large manitoba maple or Ash tree, with some other smaller deciduous trees to the West of it.
Any other tips welcome as well. Thanks!
