This shrub is semi-evergreen, so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new foliage appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained, humus-rich, acid soil or ericaceous compost
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April to May, then again in July to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The first flush of flowers appear in abundance in late spring and early summer, but after a short hiatus, new buds start to form and these open from midsummer to early autumn. Offering a much longer season of interest than many other forms, this new repeat-flowering azalea is ideal for the patio or border.

  • Garden care: Avoid planting too deeply. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of leaf mould around the base of the plant each spring.
  • Humans/Pets: Harmful if eaten
