Holden's Solar Flair Rhododendron
A great substitute for 'Capistrano'.
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.
