Clusters of funnel-shaped, true yellow flowers with fiery red throats are sure to attract attention in the spring garden. Dark green leaves provide an appealing backdrop for the flowers, and red buds provide winter interest. Bred in Ohio by David Leach, Solar Flair is hardy to zone 5. Growing 4' tall with a 3' spread, it has a dense, upright, spreading habit that is easy to fit into smaller gardens. Just offer it organically rich, acidic, well-drained soil in a partially shaded area, and avoid windy, exposed areas. Rhododendron 'Holden's Solar Flair'
