Formosa Azalea

Out of stock

The Azalea, Formosa, Azalea indica 'Formosa', is a spring blooming plant with evergreen foliage. This Azalea has an upright growth habit and is the best choice for a high light area.

The Formosa has beautiful magenta deep colored flowers that grow profusely during the spring. It can get up to 6-8 feet in height and does best on acidic soils. Plant in acid soil in filtered sunlight or light shade, although plants tolerate full sun in cool-summer areas. Use soil rich in organic matter, which retains water and drains quickly.

Never prune after mid-summer because those branches produce the next season's flowers.
