Gardeners' Notes:

My family and I live in a rolling sandhill region of oaks, palmetto and native holly southwest of Arcadia, Florida (zone 9B). I planted two fashion salmon azaleas in May, 2008, in a pine bark mulched bed, surrounded by beauty berry, East Palatka Holly and a native ground cover of green eyes (Berlandiera). Although two 35 foot live oaks are within 50 feet of the azaleas, they basically grew in full sun all summer, and bloomed throughout the hot months! They are in full flower now, in early October. This plant has provided a fine display of bright peach/orange. Impressive.

This plant is good if you want a winter flowering azalea. I've had other azaleas before and was surprised to see it still blooming in January. We recently bought a new home and the builders landscaped the front of the house using plants that included this azalea. So, good choice!
