Azalea Ultimate White Standard
Standards are a traditional and popular form of topiary where plants have clear straight stems and a ball on top like a lollypop. Stunning white variation of Alphonse Anderson, this sun tolerant variety is tall growing and features large leaves.
Will grow in full sun or part shade with Summer watering. Hardy once established. Plant in a well drained, humus-rich soil that’s slightly acidic. Fertilise in Spring and late Summer with an 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. Azaleas are also susceptible to insect attack. Treat with appropriate insecticides. Growing Azaleas in ideal conditions will help prevent any problems.
Use in garden beds, pots in courtyards or entertaining areas. Strong growing Azalea popular for making standards. Plant with other traditional favourites like Camellias, Pieris and Helleborus.
