Although the Gomer Waterer rhododendron will grow in full sunshine in cool summer areas such as the Pacific Northwest, it won't do well in your summer sunshine. This fall or next spring move it to a spot where it will get morning sun and protection from hot afternoon sun. It will perform much better for you and the leaves will not turn a crispy brown next summer.

Best wishes with your rhodies!
