Another Singing Tree Gardens rhododendron hybrid that has promise. The flowers are quite orange from a distance, thus the name. The flowers open with a red-orange color as the bud first shows color, then becomes yellow with orange edges. The flower trusses are not as tight as I would have liked, but good enough to name and register (soon). The foliage is quite handsome, being a medium apple-green color with rounded ends. The hybrid is a cross of R. 'Nancy Evans' x (R. 'Orange Marmalade' x R. 'Lem's Cameo') so will be somewhat tender...most likely zone 8 and 9.
Rare Variety – This variety is difficult to find anywhere due to these reasons
· Hard to propagate – many cultivars do not root easily from cuttings, but at a reduced rate thus making the plant rare.
· Hard to find – these cultivars are hard to find in the first place, probably because they are hard to root from cuttings
· Singing Tree Gardens Originals – All cultivars created uniquely by Singing Tree Gardens are deemed ‘rare’. Singing Tree Gardens is the ‘Exclusive Distributor in the USA’ of this variety.
