#ProPlantTips for Care

Give this variety protection from the hot afternoon sun. It thrives with at least 4 hours of filtered sunlight a day.

Azaleas need slightly acidic, well-drained soil. If you have poor drainage, build a raised bed 18-inches high. Use your native soil with a few handfuls of pine bark soil conditioner and peat moss mixed in.

Ensure that your plants receive plenty of air circulation. Don't plant right next to a building, or in a tight corner. Good airflow around each plant helps dry the foliage and reduces the potential for disease.

Far better to plant Azaleas too high, than too low. Instead, mound them up when planting by leaving a few inches of the root ball showing above the ground. Pull pine bark or pine straw mulch up to cover the root system.

This plant should be watered regularly, and well mulched. The mulch layer will also help keep the ground moist, so plan to reapply it each year. Always pull the mulch back 6 inches from the stems.

Keep your plantings weeded, as Mrs. G. G. Gerbing's shallow roots won't like the competition. We recommend creating a mulched planting bed to make it easy for yourself.

Apply a good, organic, slow-release fertilizer in early spring according to the product directions. Look for a formula designed for Acid Loving plants.

Prune to correct shape, if needed, right after the spring flowers begin to fade. Don't wait, as later pruning will threaten your blooms for next spring.

We advise allowing your Mrs. G. G. Gerbing Azaleas to grow into an informal, natural shape. You won't want to miss a single bloom!

Add brilliant color and stylish elegance by using this plant throughout your landscape in partial shade. It's a gorgeous workhorse that is worth its weight in gold.
