Description: More of our beautiful native azaleas need to be used in our landscapes. This one is easy to grow in part sun to shade in moist but well drained acidic soils. Early spring brings the fragrant and gorgeous white and pink flowers. If shaping is needed, do it asap after flowering so you don’t cut off next year’s flower buds. Grows 10 – 12′ tall x 10-15′ wide. Please do not prune this into a square or round ball, let it grow to its full natural beauty. Texas native. Blooms show up before the leaves break dormancy.
