Our descriptions also include American Rhododendron Society ratings when possible. The three numbers (i.e. 3/4/4 ) rate the flower, plant, and performance in the garden. A ‘5’ is an excellent, but uncommon, rating. ‘3’ ratings are common, but a lower rating does not mean the plant is not worth growing. ‘-/-/-‘ indicates a rhododendron that has not yet been rated by the ARS.
