#ProPlantTips for Care

National Beauty loves loamy, well drained soil for best results.  When occurring naturally, these bright plants grow on mountain slopes in thin soil. It's easy to replicate these conditions.

If needed, raise the planting area a bit for good drainage, and be sure to mulch the roots.

Please don't let the pine mulch touch the base of the stem. As your National Beauty Azalea becomes established, keep its soil moist and pull any weeds that pop up nearby.
