Great as a Stand-alone Accent or in a Hedge

Attracts Butterflies and Hummingbirds
This dense-growing evergreen shrub is ideal as a stand-alone accent or in a hedge, if several are placed in a row, where they can serve as a privacy screen or beautiful sound-absorbing barrier. Its large 4-inch trusses of brilliantly pink flowers make a bold but elegant statement in the late spring garden, attracting butterflies and hummingbirds and mixing well with other bloom and foliage colors.

'Anna Rose Whitney' grows to 5 to 7 feet high and wide and prefers cooler regions, but protection from winter wind is recommended. This eye-catching, deer-resistant Rhodie performs best in acidic soils and is quite at home under the canopies of conifers and around woodland home sites. Needing an area of partial shade, it is great for blending into pre-existing wooden environments.

Provide well-drained, organically rich soil, and follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to allow it to establish a deep root system. Apply a thick layer of mulch to keep the roots cool, and feed it with an acidic fertilizer after blooming. Prune in spring after flowering. Zones 4-7.
