I like the somewhat exotic look of this plant. It has a unique structure and appearance as compared with the common rhodies. This is only my second season with it, but it survived a frigid 0* winter. It receives a few hours of morning sun, then shade (not particularly bright shade, either). Soil is sandy/loam. Last season (it's first) it quickly wilted all summer to the least drying of the soil. I had to be careful to keep the soil consistently moist, which meant daily watering in August. I hadn't mulched around it as my other common rhodies send their roots to the top of the mulch, which tends to dry out leaving the moisture in the ground. Maybe a thick large bark will help this summer.
