Warm burgundy-maroon foliage perfect for accent planting - clip it neat or leave it to grow as a dramatic hedge. Likes a cooler spot with dappled sun. Red flowers in spring as an extra bonus.
Azalea purpurea 'Shiraz'APPEARANCE : Burgundy foliage, single red blooms during spring, although this variety is predominantly grown for its foliage.
USE FOR : Beautiful in groups as an accent plant. Ideal in tubs on patio settings. Hardy variety suited to landscape gardens.
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
