Masses of small dusky musk pink flowers cover this small shrub in winter and spring. Only 1m tall, good for pots, containers, and bonsai. A 'Kurume type' azalea, a hardy all-rounder, Kirin is a favourite azalea for reliability and all round performance; and can make excellent bonsai plants.
We love Kirin for the soft pink colour, petite size, all-round performance
