Special Attributes

'Tama-no-Hada' is a flowering beauty! It is an evergreen azalea whose immense single white blooms are striped, streaked, or tinged pink. Solid pink flowers also occur, as do red-blotched blooms. The funnel-shaped blooms are borne in abundance in mid- to late-spring. Flowers are borne from May to June and also vary in size (from less than one to more than five inches) and shape. The small leaves (1/2 to 2 inches long) vary widely in shape, usually lance-shaped to elliptic. 

History 

The Satsuki Japanese azaleas are believed to have originated several hundred years ago from natural crosses between R. indicum and R. tamarae. Later, horticulturists continued the crosses between these two species as well as others.



Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a low mound 24-30 inches tall and 3 to 4 feet wide at maturity, 'Tama-no-Hada' 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' 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.
