Comments: This azalea produces handsome lavender-orchid colored flowers in spring. The foliage is always a more yellow-green than most of the other Indian azaleas. It is a good companion plant with the magenta-colored 'Formosa' azalea. Periodic pruning may be required to keep growth in check and the plant more compact.
