Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral Sequoiadendron4 On Oct 19, 2014, Sequoiadendron4 from Lititz, PA (Zone 6b) wrote:

This is our only evergreen azalea and, to be honest, I'm just glad I didn't kill it. I've never had much luck in the way of evergreen azaleas. Anyway, this plant grows at a glacial pace. I planted it 3 years ago from nursery stock and it pretty much looks the same. I will say though nothing beats the color of its bloom and that's why it continues to earn a place in the garden.
