Comments: A good pink selection for growing in groups of masses in the landscape or as speecimen plants. It grows to a medium size for azaleas and can be kept to a height of 4-6 feet and an equal spread. They do grow and better and live longer when allow to grow freely and not kept at an artificially low height of 2-3 feet. Those kurumes that are constantly pruned are not long lived.
