In northern coastal areas can take full sun if gets plenty of water. Treated much the same as rhondodendron and azalea which it is related to.

Comes in varieties with variegated leaves and flowering varieties of maroon, pink and white.

Rating for this plant:
Slow grower with early spring blooms, nice greenery, and an upright, but flowing habit make it an attractive specimen in a shady area.
