Trusses of funnel shaped, bright crimson-purple flowers appear in late spring, smothering the small, dark green leaves, which are retained throughout the year. This dwarf, evergreen azalea is perfect for adding colour to the woodland or adding colour towards the front of a lightly shaded border, raised bed or patio pot.
- Garden care: Avoid planting too deeply and apply a generous mulch of leaf mould around the base of the plant each spring.
