    I have seen conflicting listings for height for these two cultivars.

    Has anyone got them in a BC coastal garden or know where to view them? And if so, what height have you seen them attain?

    Just trying to decide where to site them in my garden!

    Regards and thanks,
    Janet

    Like conifers, rhododendrons are slow-growing, long-lived ancient plants that gradually get bigger and bigger. Heights given by commercial sources often estimates for 10 years of growth. After 20 years of growth a specimen may be twice as tall or nearly so, and so on. How fast one grows in one place, and how long it maintains youthful vigor will be different from how the same clone performs on another site.
