Azalea Christmas Cheer
Small perky deep red blooms cover the rich evergreen foliage in spring. Very free flowering, vivid colour. A smaller growing Azalea that won’t get bigger than about 1.2m tall.
Great for a border plant around the garden, along a path, and also for low hedging. A nursery favourite with us.
We love Christmas Cheer for the deep red colour, cute little flowers, compact handy size
Azalea kurume 'Christmas Cheer'APPEARANCE : Clusters of rich red single blooms with pointed petals appear above neat small dark evergreen foliage.
USE IN: In groups as a mass display of flowering colour; small hedging, feature planting. Ideal for pots.
CLIMATE : Will tolerate light frost once established.
PLANTING : Azaleas love dappled, morning and/or afternoon sun. Full sun is ok but not too exposed, hot and dry. Azaleas hate drying out.
Plant in a free draining soil rich in organic matter.
CARE : Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. Continue to water on a regular basis for the first twelve months to ensure the plant becomes fully established. Prune after spring flowering to promote dense growth habit and flowering next season, fertilise using a slow release fertiliser such as Osmocote which is specially formulated for azaleas
