Rhododendron Vulcan's Flame

Out of stock

The Rhododendron 'Vulcan's Flame', 'Rhododendron 'Vulcans Flame’ is a vigorous, easy to grow plant with a broad, rounded habit.

The fiery red flowers appear against the dark green foliage in late spring. It matures to 5 feet tall and 6 feet wide.

Rhododendrons are shallow rooting so they require regular watering during the summer or during hot spells. To create a full, well-shaped shrub, pinch-off the new growth for the first few years.

Vulcan’s Flame is an easy care rhododendron that needs excellent drainage, mulching and a peat moss soil additive. Roots will rot in poorly drained soil, so well-drained soil is a must! Established plants can benefit from fertilization.

The Vulcan is heat and sun tolerant. An ideal location in colder zones is an area with filtered shade and some winter protection.

If you want a red flowering rhododendron, this one is it!
