Special Attributes

Perhaps the most unique of the sun and heat-tolerant evergreen Southern Indica Azaleas, and any other azaleas for that matter, the 'Mardi Gras' Azalea displays LOADS of large and eye-catching flowers with ruffled white petals and bursts of coral-pink painted on each petal. Truly spectacular! In mid to late spring the 3 to 4 inch diameter flowers nearly cover the 3 to 4 feet tall and 4 to 5 feet wide mound of evergreen foliage. A fine selection for a natural hedge or a sunny to partially shaded woodland border. Grows more rapidly than other types of azaleas. Mardi Gras blooms late enough in the season to feed the hummingbirds and butterflies!




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a mound 3 to 4 feet tall and 4-5 feet wide over time, the Mardis Gras Azalea is most useful as a natural hedge or in small to large groupings in landscape borders. The plants perform exceptionally well under tall pine trees. Also ideal for use as accents, corner plants or as espalier against large open walls in home foundation plantings. Lower branches can also be removed to form an attractive small evergreen tree for use as a focal point specimen in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. A fine addition to Azalea gardens, purple theme gardens and cottage gardens.  

Suggested Spacing:  3-4 feet apart for solid hedges;  6+ feet apart for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Southern Indica Azaleas are very 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, we think they perform and look their best with a little shade or filtered sunlight during the hottest part of summer afternoons. Established plants have good drought tolerance.
