Radiant Pale Yellow Blooms Holden's Solar Flair

Every Rhododendron is pretty, but this one seems very special, with luminescent pale yellow blooms that burst forth from rose pink buds. Something about the combination of that gleaming yellow with the deep, glossy green leaves feels very fresh and modern.

It's not without spice, either! Each bloom is daubed with a fiery "splotch" of garnet. Never overpowering, that red instead adds some extra "oomph" to this compact shrub.

Holden's Solar Flair Rhododendron is an easy selection to live with and love all year around. Even after the blooms are done, the attractive broadleaved foliage is evergreen.

This would make a wonderful modern foundation planting against gray, white, tan, brown or stone clad exteriors. Use as a low hedge near your patio or consider using them in containers.

They'll contrast beautifully with other spring bloomers, like iris and peonies. Or extend a monochromatic display with overlapping yellow roses such as Popcorn Drift® or Sunny Knock Out® that will bloom the rest of the growing season.

Rhododendrons naturally grow in the thin soil of mountainous slopes. They won't do well in poorly draining soil. Check on your soil by digging a hole and pouring a bucket of water in it. Does it take longer than 10 minutes to drain?

If so, you'll need to improve the drainage by creating a mound or raised bed 18 inches tall. Amend the soil with pine needle compost. You'll need to plan to keep this beauty evenly watered. Once established, this is a low-maintenance shrub, and what a beauty!

Please place your order, we've only got a limited number of this high-demand variety.

  • Gorgeous Pale Yellow Flowers
  • Attractive Evergreen Foliage
  • Low Maintenance in Well Drained Soil
