Rhododendrons can flourish in Chicago — with these tips in mind

Chicago News

Most azaleas and rhododendrons grow well in a partially shaded location with some, such as those in the Northern Lights series, doing well in full sun. If they are grown in heavy shade, few flowers will be produced and growth will be spindly. Generally, they grow well on the north and east sides of your home, where they are protected from hot afternoon sun. Evergreen rhododendrons should ideally be planted where they are protected from winter sun and wind.
