Any easy-to-grow evergreen shrub perfect for any-size garden.

The dome-shaped trusses hold about 14 funnel-shaped flowers.
With a name like 'Unique', you will be expecting a plant that brings something truly special to your garden, and that's exactly what you get! This highly attractive Rhododendron offers a compact, mounded habit of thick, dark green foliage that's blanketed in early to mid-spring with large trusses of crimson-spotted white flowers with a pinkish tinge. The dome-shaped trusses hold about 14 funnel-shaped flowers, each about 2¾" across.

Even when not in bloom, this easy-to-grow evergreen shrub makes an eye-catching garden accent. The leaves are oblong-ovate, about 3 inches long, and very densely set. Reaching a height and width of 4 to 6 feet, it's impressive enough for the largest, most well-maintained landscapes but manageable enough to also fit into small gardens and informal settings.

'Unique' performs best in organically rich, well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to allow it to establish a deep, extensive root system. After bloom, feed with an acidic fertilizer. A thick layer of mulch is recommended to keep the roots cool. This shrub prefers cooler regions, but some protection from harsh winter winds is beneficial. Zones 6-8.
