Hi. It's an ordinary rhododendron, but isn't it beautiful?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Explore Your Garden Personality: The Collector
Discover sight lines. I believe no garden is complete without at least one sculptural element. I also believe there is a fine line between just enough art and too much art. This can be a difficult concept for the collector to grasp.Almost every garden has multiple sight lines; the entire garden is not usually visible from any one vantage point. The collector can use this to his or her advantage with regard to art placement. A well-placed shrub, a screen, a wall or even a house corner can create a new opportunity for siting art. Placing art this way adds a new dimension of depth and discovery to a space. Depending on size and how much attention each piece commands, try to limit your art to one to three pieces per sight line. That is enough.
