This very floriferous rhododendron produces trusses of funnel-shaped flowers that appear orange from a distance. The bright pink and yellow flowers really pop against the glossy, dark green foliage. Rio Salsa Rhododendron has a dense, upright, spreading habit and looks good when planted as a specimen plant in the garden or in groups. Its evergreen foliage adds year-round interest to the woodland or shaded garden. This rhododendron grows best in organically rich, acidic, well-drained soil in a partially shaded area. Avoid planting it in windy, exposed areas. Quart. Rhododendron 'Rio Salsa'
