Mandarin Lights Azalea

Out of stock
The Azalea Mandarin Lights, Azalea 'Mandarin Lights', has an upright and rounded form and produces lightly scented, stunning bright orange or reddish orange flowers in spring and early summer; has showy bronze-red fall foliage that is simply gorgeous! It is one of the renowned Northern Lights series of very cold-hardy Azaleas bred in Minnesota. It was designed in order to bring this glorious warm-climate shrub all the way through zone 4. This plant needs excellent drainage, mulching and a peat moss soil additive. Roots will rot in poorly drained soil, and it does not do well in windy sites. Plant in acid soil in filtered sunlight or light shade, although plants tolerate full sun in cool-summer areas. Mulch Mandarin Lights well and avoid disturbing its roots (which remain very near the surface), fertilize twice a year with an acidic mixture, and water well throughout the growth period. Never prune after mid-summer because those branches produce the next season's flowers.
