Heat Tolerant Shrub + Giant Red Blooms
Why Red Rhododendron Shrubs?
Extreme heat tolerance meets huge red blooms in the spring, making the Red Rhododendron second to none. In fact, this heat-tolerant Rhododendron can go where no rhododendron has ever gone before...thriving in direct sunlight or partial shade.
Popular for its huge clusters of vibrant red flowers, this shrub takes any garden up a notch. And not only is it stunning...but it's also adaptable to an array of conditions, from poor soil to sweltering temperatures and beyond. The Red Rhododendron is even drought-tolerant, so you won't have to worry about installing irrigation or watering constantly.
From flower beds to walkways and property borders or groupings along your foundation, the Red Rhododendron delights. You can grow them just about anywhere you want!
Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better
First, your Red Rhododendron is shipped in a larger container with nutrient-rich soil, ensuring you receive an established and better-developed plant. Many of our competitors only offer small sizes, which will take years to reach an appealing height.
And unlike other big-box garden centers, we never ship bare-root. When your Red Rhododendron arrives at your door, it has its healthy roots intact to deliver bolder color, bigger blooms, and better branching than ever before.
You'll be excited about your new rhododendrons. Watch them quickly fill in voids with scarlet blooms and glossy foliage that are not found in any other specimen. Get your Red Rhododendron today!

Have to see if they bloom
I would like to give it a great rating because I like your company, but we have to wait to see if they bloom if they bloom in a couple of months it’ll be 45 610 stars!
I’m happy with my plants
Great experience. I wish I knew the name rather than just Red Rhododendron.
The experience with Fast Growing Trees was exceptional. The plants were delivered as scheduled, very well packaged and appeared to very health. I had a family emergency and was unable to plant immediately but the plants did not appear to affect their growth. Finally planted them and so far they are growing beautifully .
Your nursery got top marks from us.
We followed your directions on planting and watering We bought 3 trees and they’re thriving. Your packing and shipping was truly impressive
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Select an area with full to partial sun (4 to 6 hours of sunlight daily) and well-drained soil. From there, dig a hole large enough to accommodate your shrub's rootball, place your shrub, and backfill the soil.
3. Fertilizing: Feed with a well-balanced fertilizer after your shrub's blooms have dropped.
4. Pruning: Shear for shaping purposes in fall or early winter. You can remove dead and broken branches at any time of the year.
Most items ship the next business day unless otherwise noted
