Majestic, mountain of a shrub. Oriental and woodland uses in my garden. Even though I heard that it is related to Rhododendrons, I have no trouble with keeping it well watered. Over one month of 90-degree+ temps in partial sun last summer and it didn't so much as flinch. I would like to see it used more often in Sacramento.
