-- -- --
Grows in bogs, edges of creeks, next to ponds in the Sierras, higher elevations of the Coast Ranges from Mt. Palomar north into Oregon. I\'ve lost a shoe walking out to photograph the flowers before. The ground looked dry and solid, but it was about 1 ft. of raw peat with water and mud under it. Needless to say this plant loves regular water. CALM in Bakersfield had a couple growing for years in alkaline soil on a north wall with regular water.

Rhododendron occidentale tolerates sand and seasonal flooding.

Rhododendron occidentale's foliage type is deciduous.
