If your garden is lacking a show-stopping display of elegant flowers each spring, then Girard's Pleasant White Azalea (Rhododendron x 'Girard's Pleasant White') lights up your garden with a dreamy display of blooms! Bees and pollinators are sure to appreciate the early spring feast!

This plant dazzles day in and day out with its early spring show of flowers that should be described as more than just ‘pleasant’. Rather, these are luminous blossoms with clusters of long stamen that resemble white sparks flying out of the centers! Plus, they rebloom later in the season for an encore!

A broadleaf evergreen beauty performs amazingly compared to other Azalea in cooler climates. Its loveliness rivals, if not surpasses, the well-known Gardenia. In fact, Girard's Pleasant White Azalea is one of the showiest flowering plants in early spring! Plus Girard’s kicks things up a notch and adds a pleasant scent!

Planting and Application:

Because it grows well in the dappled shade, Girard's is a great addition to woodland gardens or at the edge of the woods, under larger trees and shrubs. The white flowers really will pop when mixed among the shadows and dark green undertones. Lovely in shady mixed borders and cottage gardens or as a low foundation plant.

Plant one of the most glorious hedges you've ever seen with a row of White Azalea! They produce a thickly branched, dense hedge for extra privacy. Creating both lovely, carefree informal hedges or dramatic formal rows. Small enough for containers and around patios, Azalea adds grace anywhere! The snowy-white blooms are lovely additions to a Moon garden. Placed near a patio, deck, or wherever you might enjoy them most at night.

  • Reblooming - Delicate, Showy White Flowers
  • Attractive Deep-Green Foliage
  • Beautiful Foundation Plant
  • Pollinators Love Them
  • Fragrant Early Spring Blooms

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Winter hardy in colder climates from growing zones 5 and up. Azalea tend to be heavy bloomers and produce loads of large-flowered elegance! Prune after spring flowering and ‘mound-up’ the roots with plenty of mulch.

  • Great Plant for Partial Shade
  • Broadleaf Evergreen - SemiEvergreen
  • Wide Range of Soil Types
  • Seldom Damaged by Deer
  • Even Moisture & Adapts to Many Soil Types

If you adore unforgettable clusters of showy flowers, add a Girard's Pleasant White Azalea to your garden. Better yet, add several, and fill your spring with more blooms than most gardeners can imagine! Order your dreamy Girard’s from the expert growers at Nature Hills today!
