“Baden Baden” is a Rhododendron varietal that is compact and in the right acidic conditions, produces multitudes of vibrant, scarlet-red and small to medium-sized flowers. The flowers grow on trusses in groups of 3 to 5.
Foliage is composed of medium green leaves that are in an elongated oval shape and about 7 cm in length.
With a preference for partially shaded and sheltered areas, these plants require a bit more thought and care into their placement. Full-hardy in the UK, however, they do require shelter and protection from strong, cold winds.
Also, they make wonderful additions to flower beds and borders. The springtime blooms are rather impressive and can produce a large number of flowers, which when properly grown can completely cover the plant
Due to its overall smaller size, this variety does well in containers which allow you to adjust for the soil acidity, partial shade and sheltered requirements. Other suggested planting areas include informal garden areas, like those around a cottage. They are also perfect for a patio area and courtyard garden.
