DESCRIPTION - new varieties of very hardy, vigorous small to tall growing Azalea. A range of colors and flower types. All are sun tolerant varieties with spot flowering from autumn to winter and mass flowering in spring.
CULTURAL - grow in a protected semi shaded position. Plant in a well drained, humus rich soil that’s slightly acidic. Fertilise in spring and late summer with a Azalea specific fertiliser or a complete organic fertiliser. Prune after flowering to maintain a compact shape. Mulch well during extended dry periods. If flowers are turning mushy this could be a sign of Azalea petal blight. Pick off any spent flowers and treat with appropriate fungicides. Watch also for insect attack and treat accordingly. Good air circulation will help prevent problems.
