I was hoping some of the rhodie experts and growers here could give me a list of low spreading rhodies. Preferably about 2 feet ht. x 3-4 feet wt.. Thanks in advance.

I looked at Carlsons Nursery's Website and found some in these links:

http://www.carlsonsgardens.com/jeepers_browse_frame.htm

and a few more here

http://www.carlsonsgardens.com/tisbury_browse_frame.htm

This is a highly recommened nursery by the way.

I checked 'em out. I've seen those before and love them. I guess I'll have to bite the bullet because they are so hard to find elsewhere.
I am also looking for elepidote rhodies mainly.

I do not know any large-leaf rhodies that grow 3' or less so I used the ARS Search Engine. See the reslts here. You will have to review each individually to see if it spreads.

Thanks, Luis. That is a VERY useful search engine. I didn't know about it.

Last fall i planted Pohjole's Daughter. It is supposed to be a low and spreading large leafed rhodi. It is listed in the DG plant files. Mine was a sick one that the Home Depot buyer gave to me for free. I'd send you a cutting if I were a little more confident of the plant's health at this time. Weston Nurseries in Hopkinton MA sells it for a much bigger price, so it is in distribution. Maybe this variety will do the job for you. Where I live its hardiness is important and it is hanging on.

Thanks for that link. That is exactly what I want and I have the perfect spot for it. If you run across any similar ones (with varying flower colors) I would really appreciate it.
