Conversation Piece Azalea
Rhododendron 'Conversation Piece'

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

Special Attributes

This Azalea is a true 'Conversation Piece' that produces loads of various color flowers on the same plant. Some flowers will be dark pink, some nearly white, while others are splashed and variegated with dark pink and white with darker pink center blotches. The wonderfully unique 3.5" ruffled blooms smother the handsome dark green evergreen foliage in late spring and again in fall. For those who love Azaleas and plants with amazing color, Conversation Piece is a must have plant!




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a rounded mound 3-4 feet tall and 4 feet wide or a little more at maturity, the Conversation Azalea is ideal for use as a specimen in small garden spaces or medium size containers 14 inches or more in diameter. Plant it in small groupings or in mass plantings the 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:  3' for solid hedges;  7' 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.
