Easy to grow, this lovely Robin Hill evergreen Azalea is enjoyed in the garden with its varying shades of pink. It usually begins with deeper colored centers and the petals are infused with pink , but gets gradually lighter toward the edges. This broad spreading Azalea blooms from early Spring until early Summer, depending on the temperatures.
