How To Care

With little care, you can enjoy the beautiful attributes of this plant for years to come. Only requiring pruning after blooming and an acidic fertilizer in early spring, the Hardy Gardenia Azalea will produce an abundance of dazzling white blooms every spring.

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.

Loved it!

I couldn't find these shrubs anywhere near my home. I was able to find them here at the Planting Tree. The ordering process through delivery process was smooth. I received notification through every step. I received my shrub within a week of ordering. It was very green and healthy. It even had small buds on it. I planted it in my garden and it's doing well. I highly recommend ordering from here.

Gardenia Azalea

Love the azalea. Ours are a little "leggy". Wish the foliage was a little more lush. Planning to prune them after the bloom and hope that will help.
