The Kurume Azalea 'Snow', Rhododendron kurume X 'Snow', is the hardiest and most profuse bloomer of the semi-dwarf azaleas. 'Snow' is a moderate grower forming a dense mound 3'-5' tall. It produces an abundance of pure white, hose-in-hose blossoms against a backdrop of small glossy leaves. This dense, upright, evergreen shrub has small, 1 1/4 inch long, elliptic, glossy, olive green leaves.
The Kurume are prized for showy clusters of small, profuse early to midspring flowers, 1 to 3 per truss, which literally cover the plant. 'Snow is best adapted to partial sun. Prune immediately after flowering so you won't cut off any of next year's flower buds. Plant as you would any of the other azaleas: high and in well-drained, acidic soil, rich with organic matter.
