Martian King


This is a hard to find hybrid rhododendron and we usually only have a few available at a time, at best. We love the incredibly robust and large trusses of rich red blossoms. The leaves of this great plant provide a very nice skirting for the trusses. Along with Francesca, Martian King is our favorite deep red rhododendron. New foliage has lovely yellow stems that converge with the rich green of the leaves. We love recommending plants like this that bring various characters of color to the garden beyond just the bloom season. A midseason bloomer, we recommend partial shade and limited full sun. Grows to around 3' tall and hardy to 0°F when protected from windchill.
