This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained, humus-rich, acid soil or ericaceous compost
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Glorious trusses of glowing, golden-orange, funnel shaped flowers in late spring, opening from coppery-red buds, and medium sized, mid-green leaves. This deciduous azalea looks stunning planted 'en masse' in a sunny shrub border with humus-rich, acid soil. Winter flowering shrubs are good companions, providing interest after it has lost its beautiful autumn leaves.

  • Garden care: Avoid planting too deeply. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of leaf mould around the base of the plant each spring.
