Rhododendren grow huge in NE Ohio but struggle in Columbus due to it's different soil. We want to landscape our back yard this year. What floral and shrubs grow best in this type of soil?

Rhododendrons and azaleas like acidic soil. You can amend your soil to help acidify it or you can plant shrubs that aren't so reliant on soil acidity for good growth. Some shrubs to consider planting in your native soil include Mountain laurel, Pieris, drooping Leucothoe, Holly, Boxwood, and Wintergreen. Enjoy your garden!
