Special Attributes

'Flame Creeper' is a low growing, spreading azalea that produces LOADS of flaming, bright coral-orange flowers with overtones of pink to peachy-pink from mid-spring through late spring on trailing branches that form dense mounds to 2 feet high and 3 to 4 feet or more wide. The lustrous deep green leaves remain year round making this azalea an excellent choice as a massed groundcover or low border.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a low, spreading mound to 24 inches tall and 3 to 4 feet wide or more, 'Flame Creeper' Azalea is ideal for use in groupings or massed as a groundcover or low border in partially shaded landscape borders and home foundation plantings. Its trailing stems can also be trained to climb up a trellis or wall. Very nice when cascading over a wall or the edges of containers when growing in a pot. Plant it in small groupings to mass plantings or as a border along paths and walkways in larger 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:  2-3' for mass plantings;  6' or more for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

The Flame Creeper Azalea is very easy to grow when planted right and in the right spot. As with other azaleas, it prefers an acidic, moist but well-drained soil rich in organic matter. Though it will grow in full sun, morning sun with afternoon shade or filtered sun is ideal. Has moderate drought tolerance when established.
