Attractive flowering evergreen shrub.
FEATURES: Azaleas provide a vibrant display over a long period.
CONDITIONS: Azaleas tolerate a wide range of climates and soils,
provided soil pH is around 5-6, and well drained. Poor soils can
be improved by incorporating organic material such as compost.
Full to part sun is generally tolerated in cooler climates, while in
warmer climates, a semi-sheltered position is preferred..
FOR BEST RESULTS: When planting, dig a hole at least twice
as wide as the root-ball and back-fill the hole to give the roots
an easy start. Mulch the area well and provide regular, deep
soaking in warm and dry weather. Prune lightly after flowering
to encourage dense new growth and maintain desired shape and
size. Fertilise in Spring with a complete fertiliser.
