The Red Rhododendron, Hellikki, is an exceptional rhododendron developed in Finland for hardiness in much colder regions than classic rhododendrons will tolerate. Not only that, this is the rhododendron you want for those full-shaded areas where other rhododendrons will fail. Unhappy in sun, this gorgeous and dramatic plant is the perfect choice for shady spots, where it will bring brilliant color and beautiful evergreen foliage to create a dramatic presence in your garden. It produces dark violet-red flowers set against lush glossy green foliage.

  • Huge and delicious rich red flowers
  • Extra shade tolerant
  • Cold hardy to minus 25 degrees or more
  • Beautiful large, glossy evergreen foliage
  • Medium sized to give structure to your plantings

The open, cupped flowers come into full bloom by mid-June, creating a burst of color just as your earlier rhododendrons are beginning to fade. The leaves have a soft, brown, felt-like texture under the leaves, associated with all the best varieties and adding interest to your plant.
