They have somewhat different sun exposure tolerance depending on the specific species and variety, but as a general guideline, they prefer filtered light beneath a tree canopy, or eastern exposures (morning sun, afternoon shade) or northern exposures. Too much sun and the foliage burns; too much shade and they may not bloom well. Good luck with your rhododendrons!
