Large clusters of very soft, peachy-pink, funnel-shaped flowers add charm to partially shaded and woodland areas in mid spring. The 2" flowers fade to soft cream with a yellow throat and look exquisite against the evergreen, healthy-looking, dark green foliage. Percy Wiseman Rhododendron, a compact shrub, looks equally at home when planted as a specimen plant or in groups. It grows best in organically rich, acidic, well-drained soil in a partially shaded area. Avoid planting it in windy, exposed areas. Rhododendron 'Percy Wiseman'
