First, I live near HOT, HOT, HUMID Houston. Actually, between Houston and Galveston. Very hot and humid. This has always equated to "don't bother with rhododendrons. Stick with carefully chosen azaleas". I ordered this plant because of the changing bloom color and heat resistance endorsements on the site. All my Houston gardening friends on line said it would die from our heat. I also supposedly ordered them at the wrong time of year, since the plant is a baby and we were heading into the hottest part of the year. In fairness, I did order two plants and only one has lived, but I think I put the pot for the first one in too bright of an exposure. The one I put in the ground after observing the best location of the potted ones has really outdone itself. This review is not about the blooms, since the plant is probably too young but it has really held its own in our heat. I also haven't actually watered it that much. The rating says normal water requirements but I would say it has needed slightly less than that. I have it in a raised bed with bright dappled morning sun. Our morning sun kills plants that are rated for all day full sun, and this one actually gets an hour or so of late afternoon sun, so go figure. I just want to encourage anyone on the edge of the heat range of rhododendrons, who wants to try them, to start with this one. I can't wait to review the blooms, next year.
