Where to begin with the beauty and virtues of this bush. A dense, compact grower to around 3 feet tall and 4 feet wide, it is small enough for any garden, but big enough to make a beauty statement in a large one too. Flowering late, it extend the season for these beautiful plants by several weeks, and that’s a big deal. Last but certainly not least, the flowers are simply amazing. Huge frilled cups, in trusses of up to 16 blooms, the flowers are a striking dark, solid fire-red, blazing across your garden like a beacon. Suitable for all gardens of all sizes, make it a center-piece in yours.

  • Huge, stunning trusses of bright red flowers
  • Flowers late, so extends the rhododendron season by weeks
  • Dense, compact form – will be happy in the smallest garden
  • Needs acidic soil to grow well
  • Dead-head after flowering but never prune

The Firestorm Rhododendron grows well with some morning sun and afternoon shade. It should have a soil with a pH no more than 6.5 and closer to 5.5 is better. The soil should be rich with organic matter, and with additives like lime-free rotted leaves, peat and lime-free compost. Use these materials as mulch too, applied in spring across the entire root zone. Deer, rabbits, pests or diseases are almost never problems, and no pruning is needed or suggested. Let nature decide its shape, or flowering will be reduced. Dead-head younger plants as needed to encourage flowers the following season.
