Dwarf Rhododendrons don't mind the sun but they hate too much heat, so do avoid reflected heat from South facing walls and patios, particularly if planting in containers. This is a tough plant and we think one of the best yellow varieties. One of the 'bird' series of dwarf hybrids bred at Glendoick in Scotland.
