Azaleas vs rhododendrons
I posted this in the Ozarks forum, but the past few summers in Little Rock have rivaled any I ever had in MS and AL. So, I'll post my question here...
I have an area that I want to plant with azeleas or rhodendrons. I love rhodos, but I hear they are finicky. I rarely see any around here. Maybe there's a reason for that. It's the heat that they apparently don't tolerate too well.
Are there any secrets to being successful with rhododendrons in the hot south? Or should I just go with azaleas? l love them, too.
