Comments: Sir Robert Peel is one of the best rhododendrons for growing in zones 8 and higher. In areas where rhododendrons occur naturally, this selection can become a small tree and is used as a small street tree at some locations in New Zealand. Used as a specimen plant or in mass planting in the landscape.
