Comments: This is a Linwood hybrid azalea that is of moderately low size with dense, dark green foliage and two-inch, white, hose-in-hose flowers appearing in spring and reblooming later in the year. This plant stays quite compact and maintains a manageable size. When pruning is needed, prune immediately after the heavy spring bloom. Fertilize azaleas in early spring and keep plants mulched to conserve moisture and protect shallow roots.
