I'm sorry, I didn't mean to come across rudely, but I was confused about the question since...

I'm learning that if I go do research either by searching the Gardenweb site for keywords or by searching Google (or your favorite search engine) for keywords, I usually find the answer to my question and a lot of interesting things besides.

I've tried rhododendrons before on the MS Gulf Coast with 100% failure. I'm told that it's to hot here. I was visiting my daughter in Hover AL and I could not resist buying two at Pikes Nursery. Just beautiful. I passed this on to a transplant yankee friend and she laughted and said I should take a picture now because they will sone be gone.

I bought a rhododenrun from Pushepetappa Gardens in Franklinton, La several years ago and it is still alive and doing fairly well. They have selections for this area. Their phone is 504-839-4930 email "jthornton@i-55.com"
