SKU: rho_fla_000 Category:
Rhododendron flammeum has multiple upright, loosely branched stems that form a medium-sized, spreading deciduous shrub with dark green alternate leaves and showy clusters of flowers. The flowers are about 1″ across, trumpet-shaped, and have variable yellowish-orange to orange-red to bright red petals with elongated stamens that extend well beyond the petals. The blooms are borne in radial clusters of 6-11 flowers and are followed by brown seed capsules. This species is relatively drought tolerant. Rhododendron species thrive in moist, well-drained, acidic soil. Soil testing and amending the planting site in order to achieve the correct soil pH is recommended.  A thick layer of pine bark mulch applied to and around the site before planting will help retain moisture and acidify the soil if needed.
