    Do you put ground cover under your Rhodies? I’m looking for something for mine. They were here when I moved in and the ground is all clay but the weeds love it. It’s fascinating how many varieties there are. Loved your photos of them.

      Hi, Marlene. No, we don’t plant ground cover underneath the rhodies, but here, ours are pretty large now and the weeds would have too much competition from the larger plants to survive. Thanks for the nice comment about the photos. πŸ™‚

        Thank you, Karenlee. Mine are still smallish. I know very little about caring for them but learning.

      Thank you, Amy. I love them, and wish they made better cut flowers (although I cut and bring them in anyway, yearly). πŸ™‚

      Thank you, and, yes ma’am. I didn’t post all the varieties, and I’m not sure how many we have. They used to be our main product until we started with ground covers. These rhodies are huge. Just wish they made better cut flowers. I love them anyway.

          Our two, long-time employees and my yard-loving husband are to thank for the beauty surrounding our two acres. I actually like weeding, but my back cannot handle the bending. My hubby has a knack for what looks good where, and has planted accordingly over the years. When we first moved here it was an open dirt field; now it has filled in nicely. Used to be we sold only rhododendrons but since we included ground cover, we have lots of various cover plants as well. Less maintenance… πŸ˜‰

            Sounds wonderful. Bet that’s quite a transformation from an open dirt field. I admire those who can turn empty anything into works of art.
