DESCRIPTION - a low growing Azalea to only 30cm in height. Small rounded dark green foliage. Flowers are large single white and are produced en masse in late spring to early summer
CULTURAL - semi shaded moist position . Prefers 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.
LANDSCAPE USES - a lovely delicate garden border in a protected position. Small glazed flowering pots with a Japanese feel. Useful in small intimate courtyards where space is at a minimum.
