|Small evergreen azalea. Bred to be compact and heat resistent, Brooks azaleas are ideal for warm, dry climates. Pink flowers bloom in mid-spring and are large and showy. Plant as you would any of the other azaleas: high and in well-drained, acid soil, rich with organic matter. 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.
