One of the incredible Gable Hybrids produced by Mr. Joseph Gable, Herbert Azalea is a flowering semi-evergreen selection that is very dependable. It's also wonderfully cold hardy!

Mr. Gable himself wasn't quite sure how to describe the hue of these reddish-purple flowers. He just knew he liked the color, and that it really appealed to people. We'll call them magenta and you can see for yourself that they are absolutely stunning.

In early spring, the vibrant blooms will stop you in your tracks. The flowers are simply magnificent and grow in a double layer called hose-in-hose, which gives the blooms twice the visual impact.

The trumpet-shaped blooms attract butterflies and beneficial pollinators with their rich nectar. Herbert Azalea will also keep the local hummingbirds busy.

Herbert isn't shy! These showy semi-evergreen Azaleas are definitely "neighbor approved" and grow into a landscape asset. Bright green foliage will show off its bountiful blooms and remain steadfast all year-long in warmer climates.

Lively up your woodland garden with a grouping of Herbert Azaleas. They'll easily boost areas that seem to lack color or personality.

Plant Herbert Azalea as a gorgeous hedge along your property boundary. Because it performs well in partial shade, this plant will also make a great hedge beside your fence or around your pool or patio.

You'll want to plant Herbert Azalea in well-drained, acidic soil for its best performance. They naturally prefer to grow in a mound of soil.

You can achieve this mounding effect by planting them in a shallow hole and leaving several inches of the root ball above the ground. Then cover up the roots with a thick layer of pine mulch, while avoiding the stem.

Bring excitement to your yard with the Herbert Azalea. You'll add color and elegance to your garden with its frilly, hose-in-hose flowers.

You deserve this magnificent plant. Order Herbert Azalea from our flowering shrub experts today!
