Special Attributes

Named PLANT OF THE YEAR by the American Rhododendron Society in 2005, Hilda Niblett Azalea produces some of the most exciting, eye-catching flowers of any azalea. Large flowers in various shades and overtones of light pink to peachy pink and dark peach are produced over a long bloom period from early spring to early summer on low mounds maybe a foot high and 3 feet wide. Lustrous, deep green foliage year round. One of a legacy series called the Robinhill Azaleas, it has stood the test of time beautifully. There's no other Azalea like Hilda Niblett in the garden!



Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a low mound 18-24 inches tall and 3 to 4 feet wide at maturity, Hilda Niblett Azalea is ideal for use as a specimen in small garden spaces and containers 12 inches in diameter or more. 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 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.
