A Gable hybrid. Lighter green foliage than most azaleas. One here is probably thirty years old and five feet high. Flowers mid to late season. It's growing in almost full sun, and lacebugs are a problem.

HERE IN THE DEEP SOUTH, THESE AZALEAS ARE PERFECT. THEY BLOOM PROFUSLY AND BEAUTIFULLY. SOMETIMES, IF WE HAVE AN UNUSUALLY STORMY SPRING, THE BLOOMS BECOME TATTERED; OTHER THAN THAT, AZALEAS ANNOUNCE "SPRINGTIME" FOR US.

They're great azaleas, but bloom later than most. Remember that when you're adding them to a mixed azalea bed.

I love this azalea! The pink flowers really do look like little roses. Evergreen, blooms profusely and loves moist soil. Fertilize with azalea food in spring. Deserves a special place in your landscape.

Reliable bloomer when rain is abundant. In dry conditions, buds do not open fully. Bloom drop is not clean.
