This semi-evergreen Azalea is outfitted with bright fuschia pink flowers in late spring. It might be hard to tell which is brighter...the blooms or the butterflies and hummingbirds that come to visit them!

Girard's Fuchsia Evergreen Azalea is a rounded shrub that grows large enough to make an impact, but stays compact enough to fit just about anywhere you have partial shade. Work it into your garden design to lift a dreary corner.

People across much of the country are hunting for ways to improve the looks of their mature plantings. This natural hybrid Azalea coordinates beautifully with other cultivars, but can also hold its own as a showy specimen.

Even if you are starting from scratch, you'll certainly love the sophisticated olive-green leaves that stay nice and lustrous. In fall, the foliage develops a fantastic reddish color that remains through spring.

If your winters are warm, the narrow red leaves will remain all winter. In cooler winters, the leaves drop and only hold at the very tip of the branches.

Watch for fresh, bright green leaves to emerge in early spring. A bit later in spring, the spectacular flower show begins again. Don't miss Girard's Fuchsia Evergreen Azalea as part of a collection, or as a "signature piece" throughout your garden.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Grow Azaleas in partial shade. They need at least four hours of sunlight a day, but will need protection in the afternoon.

Air circulation also keeps plants happy and healthy. Pull them out away from buildings and tight corners to keep the foliage dry.

Shallow-rooted Azaleas prefer moist, acidic, well-drained soil. Add additional soil in a planting mound or raised bed if you have heavy, clay soil that retains moisture for a long time.

During planting, add handfuls of compost, peat moss and Nature Hills Root Booster. Plant them high, with an inch of root ball showing, then cover with pine needles or pine straw as mulch.

Ensure your Azaleas receive a moderate amount of water on a regular basis. Reapply your layer of mulch every year, then pull it back away from touching the main trunk.

Weed around the base of these beautiful plants. Avoid growing groundcovers nearby, as the root system won't like competition.

Apply a good, organic, slow-release fertilizer in early spring according to the label. Use a formula for flowering, acid-loving "ericaceous" plants.

Prune to shape after flowering is done. You can also plan ahead to determine which branches you'll clip..and take them early for indoor cut flower arrangements.

Plant Girard's Fuchsia Azalea in your space this season. Then simply accept the compliments on your incredible taste!
