evergreen azalea

5 year guarantee
2 litre pot £14.99
2 litre pot £14.99

This shrub is semi-evergreen, so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new foliage appears again in spring.

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

    Masses of funnel-shaped white flowers, each with slightly ruffled petals and a central boss of spider-like stamens, clothe the stems in early summer. These look luminous against the backdrop of small, dark green leaves, some of which are retained throughout the year. This is a dwarf, semi-evergreen azalea will make a great potted patio plant. It also makes excellent low cover for lightly shaded borders or woodland settings.

  • Garden care: Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of leaf mould around the base of the plant each spring. Protect from strong afternoon sun and cold drying winds.
