What rhododendron is best in full sun?
New here...first post, so please excuse me if this is something that has been hashed out before.
I have a spot in my garden that is calling for a dark evergreen with a coarse texture and floral interest...which is virtually a perfect description of a rhododendron. It's an east-facing slope with a Zone 6 microclimate (my neighbors are more Zone 7, but we're reliably 2 weeks behind them in everything). The entire yard gets strong sun all morning--I've already given up growing camellias in the front yard (though they thrive on the shaded and sheltered north side, along with sweet olive and gardenias, which shouldn't even survive here).
I have little experience with rhododendrons, but I've always read that they like shady conditions. Is there any rhododendron that does well in the conditions I described?
