A gorgeous flowering Kurume variety, 'Candy Stripe' features striking single cream blooms with pink edges and stamens. The flowers appear in abundance in spring, nestled among mid-green small leaves.


Prefers a part shade position with well-drained, humus-rich soil that is slightly acidic. Hardy once established, Azaleas benefit from pruning after flowering to maintain a compact shape. Mulch well during extended dry periods and fertilize with an Azalea-specific or complete organic fertilizer in spring and late summer. If flowers become mushy, it might be a sign of petal blight; remove and dispose of affected flowers, then treat with appropriate fungicides. Azaleas are also susceptible to insect attacks, such as aphids, treat with suitable pesticides.

Landscape Uses

Ideal for borders, mass plantings, and under trees where it flourishes in filtered sunlight, 'Candy Stripe' also excels as a container plant on shaded patios or balconies. Kurume Azaleas are often used in Japanese-style gardens, where they are clipped into gorgeous flowering mounds. They complement other Japanese-style plants such as Acer, Camellia, Pieris, and Ophiopogon.
