I have had mine for about 15 years. It is a reliable bloomer here in WA. But my plant is a lot bushier than the photo 7 is just covered with orangy-red flowers right now (Apr 6). However it does have good drainage.

One of the best reds for cold climates. While Rhododendron are not happy sitting in water, my 'Stewartsonian' shrubs had their rootballs submerged in water on and off from January to March, due to the constant heavy snows and subsequent melting. For two days, the whole bed was an ice-skating rink! The three Rhodies that made it with flying colors despite this were 'Boudoir', 'Bixby', and 'Stewartsonian.' Since the bed is obviously not properly drained, I have been lifting all the shrubs, but I am impressed by how well this shrub fared.
