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. Quart. Rhododendron 'Holden's Solar Flair'

  • Unique CharactersticsWayside: Quickly becoming known as one of the best hardy, yellow Rhododendrons, 'Solar Flair' explodes in mid-spring with true yellow flowers that sport a fiery red blotch. The dark green, mildew-resistant foliage makes a wonderful contrast to the radiant blooms as well as the attractive red buds that persist throughout winter. Bred in Ohio by renowned breeder, David Leach, 'Solar Flair' is the result of a cross with two of Leach's previous hybrids, 'Calcutta' and 'Casanova', plus 'Goldsworth Orange'. Rhododendron catawbiense adds wonderful hardiness to the pedigree of this gorgeous shrub. This new variety is a great substitute for 'Capistrano' (a beauty in its own right!). Reaching a mature height of about 4 feet and a width of 3 feet, it is ideal for a variety of applications and will fit in nicely in most gardens, even small ones. Provide 'Solar Flair' with organically rich, acidic, well-drained soil in partial sun, and you'll have a garden accent to greet the spring season for years to come! Zones 5-9.
