Rhododendron 'Vuyk's Scarlet'
8th June 2013
I first met 'Vuyk's Scarlet' as a flowering pot plant, produced by the Dutch in vast numbers. It has slowly escaped to
join the ranks of evergreen azaleas in the garden and its place in mass production has been taken by the more
compact R.simsii cultivars.
Compact with very large flowers, it can look a little bit artificial outside. Raised by Aart Vuyk of
Vuyk van Nes Nursery in Boskoop, Holland in the early 1950's.
