    I recently acquired a spider azalea and was wondering if anyone has had any experience with this plant?

    I've read several website that say it likes sun or sun and shade, but I was also told that more shade than sun would be better. It's a very interesting looking little plant and I want to make sure that I planted it in the right place - in an area between two other shrubs where it will get morning sun until late morning and then shaded until late afternoon when it will get a little more before the sun gets too low more

    I know nothing about growing this, but UBCBG has it growing in deep shade in the Asian Garden and in bright sun in the Alpine Garden. I went to have a look and posted a few photos at
    Rhododendron stenopetalum 'Linearifolium'

    The name UBCBG is using is R. stenopetalum 'Linearifolium'.

    Thanks!
    Judging by the photos I think it will do okay where it is.
