This is a beautiful and unusual plant but the one I have always looks bad in the winter months. The leaves shrivel up and it takes until mid spring to recover. It is sparsely flowered and I have seen them in the area around my garden looking great. I have it planted in acid soil and it gets about 2 hours early morning sun and dappled shade the rest of the day. I keep it watered and all my other deciduous and evergreen azaleas look fantastic. Anyone have any suggestions ?
