Azalea - Ashley Marie Girard
The Azalea Ashley Marie Girard, Rhododendron girard X 'Ashley Marie', is an extremely hardy evergreen azalea, with large colored rose-red flowers that bloom on strong sturdy branches. Their medium size growth habit is vigorous enough to make the Girard's adaptable to the south as well as the colder climates.
This small, evergreen shrub produces wavy clusters of deep red rose flowers that nearly cover the plants in spring. The Ashley Marie has variegated foliage and is excellent as a hedge or accent plant. Prune azaleas immediately after flowering and shape them as desired. Later pruning can decrease the number of blooms for the coming spring.
