Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral stressbaby On Apr 30, 2006, stressbaby from Fulton, MO wrote:

Container plant, overwintered in the GH in my zone. Prone to mealies in the GH, but they can be controlled. Fertilized with Miracid and iron occasionally. Blooms very fragrant but can look dirty.

Does well with proper prunning, however soil PH is critical. Liquid Iron supplaments are a quick remedy for yellowing, but a more drastic adjustment such as resoiling is the long term fix.

Positive Azalea On Sep 1, 2002, Azalea from Jonesboro, GA (Zone 7b) wrote:

Small fragent single blooms of 2-3". Attractive shrub up to 24". Evergreen and blooms sporadically from spring to late summer.
