A gorgeous flowering Kurume the ‘Candy Stripe’ has striking single cream blooms laced with pink edges and stamens. Flowers are in mass in spring, sitting amongst mid-green small leaves.

Cultural

Prefers a part shade position with a well-drained, humus rich soil that is slightly acidic. Is hardy once established. Prune after flowering to maintain a compact shape, mulch well during extended dry periods and fertilise with an Azalea specific or a complete organic fertiliser in spring and late summer. If flowers are becoming mushy this might be a sign of petal blight, pick off and dispose of then treat with appropriate fungicides. Azaleas are also susceptible to insect attack, treat with appropriate pesticides.

Landscape Uses

Looks fantastic and works well mass planted under trees or as a specimen plant. Great potted in courtyards, entertaining areas or to frame an entrance. Kurumes are often used in Japanese style gardens where they are clipped into gorgeous flowering mounds, plant with other Japanese style plants such as Acer, Camellia, Pieris and Ophiopogan.
