R. fulgens

This beautifully rounded evergreen bush has wonderful round balls of 8 – 14 small red tubular flowers.

The light coating of indumentum on the undersides of the leaves is a lovely feature of this compact shrub.

This early bloomer grows in Nepal and India; ours has reached five feet in 35 years.

R. fulgens makes its own statement by combining polished dark green leaves with a ball shaped structure. Its trunk will provide smooth pinkish gray to reddish brown peeling bark.

Hardy to 5 degrees Fahrenheit.

R. fulgens will like: 50% shade, small amounts of fertilizer on Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day, and gentle watering with well-aerated soil with good drainage.
