A great substitute for 'Capistrano'.

Attractive red buds persist throughout winter.
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.
