Comments: This has always been a very popular dwarf shell-pink flowering azalea, but it is not easily grown because soil conditions have to be ideal to keep a plant growing over a long period of time. For dwarf azaleas be sure to raise beds and include a generous amount of organic matter in the soil preparation. A healthy plant can be a beautiful specimen in the garden. It is an early midseason bloomer.
