|Name||Rhododendron 'Rising Sun'|
|Hybridizer/Origination||Sommerville selection of R. asutrinum|
|Soil Type||Sandy loam|
|Sun/Shade||Morning sun / afternoon shade or filtered light throughout the day. Whereas more sun is fine for earlier blooming plants, later blooming plants prefer less sun. The more light a plant gets, the more bloom buds will set the following year. Blooming plants that blossom later in the year and receive too much direct afternoon sun, may result in blooms lasting a shorter time period. Avoid full afternoon sun unless in the northern regions of the country.|
