|Yellow flowering Rhododendrons are much sought after nowadays. Many hybridizers all over the world, especcially in the USA and in Germany, go for bright yellow and coldhardy hybrids, till about -20 F. That's not easy, because the species with yellow flowers, R. wardii and R. campylocarpum are not that hardy. If all the winters to come, would be as mild as the last 5, here in the Netherlands, many more could be planted in the colder areas. The listed plants below are generally hardy to about 0. Some need protection from cold wind and too much sun in winter. Pn!|
