Spectacular in garden beds or large containers!




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 8 to 10 feet tall and wide, the Formosa Azalea tree is ideal for use as a specimen or in straight or staggered rows in landscape borders. A splendid small accent tree in home foundations and very nice in large pots that can be situated on patios, decks and in other outdoor living spaces. landscape borders. The plants perform exceptionally well under tall pine trees. A fine addition to Azalea gardens and purple-themed color gardens.  

Suggested Spacing:  10 feet or more apart for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Southern Indica Azaleas are easy to grow. They prefer a moist but well-drained, acidic soil that is rich in organic matter and full sun to part shade. That said, full sun is tolerated however we think they perform and look their best when receiving some filtered sunlight during the hottest part of summer afternoons. When planting in a container we suggest a 50/50 mix of potting soil and potting mix in a 16-inch diameter or larger pot with a drainage hole(s).
