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.
