rhodo's for sun in zone 6
We are redoing a large portion of our landscape and hope that we can have rhodo's in several spots. We get lots of sun and have soil that is sandy and drains well. If we amend the soil with black cow, mushroom compost and nature's helper do you think that we can grow rhodo's in our sunny spots. Does the 'Roseum Elegans' and 'Scintillation' do well in sun? I know that we'd need to mulch the roots well .
Also, I'd like to know what you would recommend to compliment the rhodo's. I'm thinking of Fothergilla and Sweetspire. The lacecape hydrangea is beautiful but may not want to exist in the same soil as the rhodo's.
Also, would you recommend planting rhodo's of the same color in a small area or a mix?
Thanks for your advice
