Johanna Azalea

Azalea japonica 'Johanna'
Sold out


The Johanna Azalea is an evergreen shrub that produces masses of red ruffled blooms. This shrub looks great all year around. Spring and summer provide crimson colored flowers with dark green foliage while autumn and winter bring warm, red foliage.

The Johanna Azalea is a hardy shrub that is densely branched. Masses of intensely pigmented blooms are produced in mid spring and provide long lasting color. Foliage is dark and glossy in the summer, but soon turns red in the fall and winter. This shrub stays small and compact only reaching a height and width of 4 feet. It is virtually maintenance free!

The Johanna Azalea is great for many uses. It can be used as a foundation planting, border, or hedge. It adds a great pop of color to any shaded or naturally wooded area. Use it in a mass planting or even as a lone specimen. This Azalea is great for a container.

The Johanna Azalea prefers partial sun to partial shade and moist, highly acidic soil. When choosing and area for you azalea, be sure to keep this in mind. Dig a hole twice as wide as the pot that your shrub has arrived in. Remove the shrub from the pot and gently probe your fingers in the bottom of the root ball to break up the dirt. Place the plant in the hole, ensuring that the top of the root ball is level with the surrounding soil. Backfill the hole while gently tamping the soil to remove any air pockets. Water thoroughly. Be sure to put mulch around the base of the shrub, to inhibit the growth of weeds and protects the roots from cold weather. This shrub does not require regular pruning, however if you feel the need to do so, trim only after flowers have started to fade away. Apply our slow release fertilizer in the spring to ensure the best flowering results.

How To Care

When planting your Azalea be sure you have the right location and conditions for your new plants to thrive.

Planting time: Spring and Fall are ideal times to plant Azaleas. However, if you avoid freezing and extremely hot temperatures you can plant any time of the year.

Sun: Full sun tends to burn most Azaleas especially in warmer climates so look for a site that provides a balanced mix of shade and sun.

Soil: Be sure your soil is well-drained and acidic. If you have alkaline soil, be sure to amend your soil. To acidify your soil amend with compost, elemental sulfur, or use fertilizers specific for acid loving plants. Mulching with pine straw or pine bark will help over time as they begin to break down, but are not an immediate solution. To improve drainage in something like a heavy clay soil, add compost and be sure to loosen up the soil well before planting.

Fertilizer: Choose a fertilizer for acid loving plants. Fertilize in late winter or early spring to give the upcoming blooms a boost.

Pruning: You don’t need to prune azaleas, but pruning after they are done blooming can help encourage a bushier growth and renew an older plant.

Beautiful Azalea!

Great experience. This was my second ordered item. My Japanese Bloodgood is my showpiece in my front yard. Excellent specimen. I would purchase another. Keep up the good work you’re doing!

Johanna Azalea

I recently bought 6 Johanna azaleas from the Planting Tree and was completely satisfied with my purchase. They got here promptly and in excellent condition. The plants were actually larger than I would have expected, being in one gallon containers. I immediately planted them and they are doing very well. Very pleased with my purchase.

Time will tell

The support people were prompt and helpful. I was concerned because my azaleas because though large in size (what a surprise!) they are very sparse and not thick and bushy. I’ve been assured that next year they will fill. I’m very hopeful!
