Regular price $16.00 Sale

Amelia Rose Azalea. This is one of Dr. Eugene Aromi's selections from his evergreen Azaleas bred for the Deep South. Most of his breeding work was to develop deciduous Rhododendron from southern native species. This cultivar has extremely double deep purple flowers on a plant which appears to be a compact Southern Indica, maybe reaching 6x6' in time, but can be easily kept at half that size. When the flower buds are opening, they resemble a very double rose. Really incredible! Plant shallow and grow in full sun to part shade, but it needs uniform moisture. Many gardeners believe Azaleas need to be in part shade, but one will have a much heavier flower bud set in more sun, but remember, if grown in full sun one will need to water almost daily in the Deep South. If this is not possible, then definitely plant in part shade.
