|Compact evergreen azalea developed primarily for cold hardiness along the mid Atlantic States. Flowers are surprisingly large and showy, magenta with red marks in throat, funnel-shaped, to 3 inches long. Bloom time is late April in warmer areas, and as late as early June where climate is cooler. Growth habit is dense, to 3 feet tall and wide.
Plant as you would any of the other azaleas: high and in well-drained, acid soil, rich with organic matter. Filtered light is best.
Though azaleas have a potentially large list of possible pest and disease problems, they are usually trouble free if planted correctly in proper cultural conditions.
