Chinzan Azalea
Rhododendron satsuki 'Chinzan'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 6a-9b  Find Your Zone >

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 6a, where this Azalea variety is not winter hardy outdoors, you can enjoy it in containers that can be moved indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.

Special Attributes

'Chinzan' is a Satsuki Hybrid Azalea that produces some of the hottest pink flowers you've ever seen! The flowers nearly cover the glossy green foliage on low mounding plants. Like the Encore Azaleas, Chinzan flowers during three seasons: spring and again in late summer into fall. The spring bloom is heavier and usually occurs late in the season during the month of May. We love this cute little azalea that has big flower power and think you will too!

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a low mound 18-24 inches  tall and 3- to 36 inches wide at maturity, the Chinzan Azalea is ideal for use as a specimen in small garden spaces and containers 14 inches or more in diameter. Plant it in small groupings, mass plantings, or as a border along paths and walkways in landscape and woodland borders and home foundation plantings. A fine addition to Asian-theme gardens, Azalea gardens, cottage gardens, and partially shaded woodland gardens. 

Spacing:  2 to 2.5' for solid hedges;  5' or more for space between plants

Cultural Preferences

Evergreen Azaleas are easy to grow when planted right and in the right spot. They prefer a moist but well-drained and acidic soil that is rich in organic matter and part sun. Morning sun with afternoon shade or filtered sun is ideal. Moderate drought tolerance when established.
