Rhododendron Kurume 'Hino-Crimson'

Native to the island of Kyushu, Japan, Kurume's are a cold-hardy azalea that made their way to the U.S. in the early 20th century (1917). The Kurume hybrids have multiplied since and now consist of several hundred varieties. The Hino-Crimson is known for its intense growth with blooms that almost cover the entire shrub, packed with red petals and crimson bells. The recommended fertilizer for azaleas is the slow release Osmocote.
