    hello .. i am wondering if anyone knows, offhand, the names of two or three smaller rhodos .. i.e. four feet tall and under .. it's a bit overwhelming reading sites and checking books .. thank you so much ..

    'Blue Diamond' and 'Cilpinense' are two standouts.

    Colour preference? I've got Patty's Bee and Wren in yellow.

    You're often best to start by seeing what a local nursery has in stock if that's going to be the easiest to get or if it's all you're going to be able to get anyway.

    Correctly 'Patty Bee', a W. Berg hybrid.

    Another nice Warren Berg hybrid, that has proven to be a bit more drought resistant in my garden is 'Ginny Gee', a light pink selection.
