This petite evergreen shrub performs an annual magic trick - every spring it completely hides its leaves with an invisibility cloak of raspberry pink flowers. Then in autumn those green leaves turn into shades of deep bronze-brown.

Low maintenance, will flower in deep shade, and reputedly rabbit-resistant. So much to enjoy, no wonder it's been grown by gardeners around the world for over a century.

Azalea kurume 'Hinode Giri'

APPEARANCE : Vibrant raspberry pink five-petalled blooms, produced in abundance in spring until they cover the bush. Foliage takes on dark bronze tones in colder months. Small-medium rounded evergreen shrub.
USE FOR : Very eyecatching in groups as hedges or a mass display of seasonal flowering colour. Suitable 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.
Plant in a moist 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. Azaleas do not like drying out. 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
HEIGHT & WIDTH: approx 1m H x 1m W.
YOUR PLANTS : These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide.
