Girard's Pleasant White Azalea
Snow-White Ruffled Blossoms
If your garden is lacking a show-stopping display of elegant flowers, then Girard's Pleasant White Azalea (Azalea x 'Girard's Pleasant White') will light up your garden with a dreamy display of lovely blooms. This plant will dazzle you day in and day out with its early spring display of flowers that should be described as "a lot more than pleasant."
This broadleaved beauty performs better than most flowering plants. It's loveliness rivals, if not surpasses the Gardenia's. In fact, Girard's Pleasant White Azalea is one of the showiest flowering plants on the planet.
As a semi-evergreen, this plant will add beauty to your garden during the coldest months of the year, and because it grows well in the shade, it's a great addition to woodland gardens or at the edge of the woods. The deep green foliage sets the perfect background for its clusters of flowers which seem to radiate.
The flowers are a pristine and sophisticated white, which can range from 3-inches to 5-
If you want to plant one of the most glorious hedges you've ever seen, try a row of Girard's Pleasant White Azalea. They will produce a thick hedge for extra privacy.
For the best performance, you'll want to use a "mound up" method when planting the Girard's Pleasant White Azalea's. Because they naturally grow on mountain slopes, they grow best when water is able to slip through their roots and soil.
You'll want to plant them with a few inches of the root ball still above the ground. Then carefully cover with an ample amount of pine mulch while avoiding the roots. You should create an 18-inch raised bed or mound and mix soil with peat moss, pine needle soil conditioner, and perlite pellets. As this azalea becomes established, pull any weeds that sprout nearby and provide plenty of water.
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 that most gardeners can imagine.
- Delicate, Showy White Flowers
- Attractive Deep Green Foliage
- A Great Plant for Partial Shade
