can I plant shrubs behind a rhodedendron



depends how much room there is - don`t want to get to close to the rhody and the soil will be dry and shady so improve soil and buy plants that will cope with dry shade

If the rhododendron is a dwarf variety, and there's plenty of room behind it with good light, no reason why not - just bear in mind tallest plants go at the back, smallest at the front.
