Planting Pros Recommend:

Plant yourself a designer garden with these spectacular flowering broad-leaved evergreen shrubs. Flamboyant, pink blooms cover Southern Charm Azalea (Azalea x 'Southern Charm') in the early mid-season each spring.

Southern Charm features noteworthy flowers that are light pink with a brighter pink blotch at the throat. This colorway adds a splashy, multi-toned depth of dimensionality for an unforgettable look.

Planting and Application:

With a tight, spreading habit, Southern Charm Azalea is covered with dense, dark green foliage all year-long. This modern hybrid indica type was bred to tolerate heat and their small, elliptical leaves handle more sunshine than other cultivars.

  • Prepare to dazzle your garden guests with long hedges along a woodland edge. Space them six feet apart on center; measuring from the center of one to the center of the next.
  • Create a Garden Room with their stylish foliage and incredible blooms. Plant one as a flowering privacy screen...and use either side for different outdoor activities.
  • As you can clearly see, the fantastic, funnel-shaped blooms of Southern Charm Azalea plants are just the right shape for hummingbirds. Add them as a backdrop in natural gardens to provide nectar and shelter.
  • Try a trio of these large-scale shrubs as a lawn planting. They'll look incredible spreading across a raised berm, as well!
  • Pair them with massive boulders, outdoor fountains or gravel mulch as a nod to Asian design sensibilities. Southern Charm also works as a brilliant highlight near mature evergreen trees.

#ProPlantTips for Care: 

Choose a planting site that has well-drained soil and "mound up" when planting by leaving an inch of their rootball showing. Add Nature Hills Root Booster to the planting hole, then pull pine bark mulch up and over to cover the exposed roots.

  • Azaleas do prefer afternoon shade...although you can push this a bit with Southern Charm. We do recommend no more than six hours of sunlight a day.
  • Ensure they receive water on a regular basis during dry weather. Weed around your Southern Charm Azalea, as their shallow roots resent competition.
  • Prune to shape them right after the blooms are finished in spring. Feed them with a high-quality fertilizer designed for acid-loving flowering plants.
