Quick Overview:

Like a brilliant splash of sunshine in the spring yard, Solar Flare Sunbow Azalea features bright yellow blooms, with just a hint of orange for an additional dash of spice. The buds have a darker orange hue, adding a two-toned affect as the flowers come into bloom.

The amazing blossoms are further enhanced by their luscious honeysuckle fragrance, a sure draw to your yard’s pollinators (who will only add to the natural majesty of the spring display). Even when Solar Flare Sunbow Azalea, Rhododendron ‘QbackB’, is done, the verdant foliage provides a lovely shrub for the rest of the season.

Description

Best grown in acidic, light, sandy, well-drained soils in part shade. Tolerates well-drained humusy loams. Prefers a sun dappled shade or high open part shade. Foliage may scorch in full sun. Acidify soils prior to planting and thereafter as needed. Shallow, fibrous root systems (do not cultivate around shrubs).will benefit from a good mulch (wood chips, bark or pine needles) for retention of moisture, stabilization of soil temperatures and winter protection. Consistent moisture is best, but soils must drain well (doesn’t like ‘wet feet’). Poor drainage inevitably leads to root rot, therefore raised beds/plantings should be considered in heavy clay soils. Roots must never be allowed to dry out. Clip off spent flower clusters immediately after bloom as practicable. Slowly naturalizes by root suckers.
