These members of the Rhododendron family thrive in shade and moist environments. Provide dappled shade all day, or morning sun and afternoon shade for these plants. Plant in a highly enriched, slightly-acidic environment with moderately moist well-drained soil. Apply a 3-4 inch thick layer of arborist pine bark mulch, extending out over the entire root system for the best moisture retention. This hybrid Azalea stays compact and tidy on its own, but if you do need to perform any pruning, do so immediately after flowering.
