I have been growing two of these white azaleas for about 5 years now. They are relatively slow-growing and are a little over 3 feet tall now. IMO, it's one of the prettiest of the smaller-size whites. The white blooms don't "brown" as much as some of the other white azaleas do.They are virtually pest and maintainence free. All I do is feed them Azalea food once a year.
