The glossy narrow leaves turn an outstanding red in the fall. The fruit is not ornamentally significant. AMERICA'S GARDENING RESOURCE ® Spread: 4 feet Pink And Sweet Azalea is a multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with a more or less rounded form.
Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition. Pink And Sweet Azalea will grow to be about 4 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 4 feet. It tends to be a little leggy, with a typical clearance of 1 foot from the ground.
It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 40 years or more.
It is very fussy about its soil conditions and must have rich, acidic soils to ensure success, and is subject to chlorosis (yellowing) of the leaves in alkaline soils. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution, and will benefit from being planted in a relatively sheltered location. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in winter to protect it in exposed locations or colder microclimates.
