Special Attributes
 
An azalea that looks good year round, ‘Johanna’ produces a profusion of carmine-red flowers in late spring through early summer. But the color show doesn't stop there. Johanna is one of the best azaleas for fall foliage, with shiny, dark green leaves that turn to spectacular shades of deep purplish-red in late fall and throughout the winter season. A must have azalea!



Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing to 3 to 4 feet tall and 4 to 5 feet wide, Johanna Azalea is a perfect choice for groupings, mass plantings, low hedges or an accent in partially shaded landscape borders, woodland gardens, and home foundation plantings. Butterflies and hummingbirds love the flowers, and blooming branches serve very well for cutting to create stunning indoor floral arrangements.

Spacing:  3' for solid hedges;  6'+ 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.
