Brilliant orangy-red blooms and vibrant green foliage, the Stewartstonian Azalea (Rhododendron x 'Stewartstonian') is a fantastic broadleaf evergreen shrub that will set your spring alight with its incredible display of trumpet-shaped flower clusters!

A Gable hybrid Azalea with a fantastic rounded form, these require very little maintenance to retain that great shape! The scarlet blooms attract hummingbirds and butterflies, as well as early emerging bees looking for nectar! After the spring flush of blossoms, you’ll enjoy the gorgeous foliage the rest of the year!

Stewartstonian kicks things up another notch in the autumn, by taking on a chocolatey red hue to the foliage once the cold touches the leaves, but they return to their vibrant glossy green each spring!

Planting and Application:

Reaching a good-sized 4-5 feet in height and width, these are fantastic year-round privacy and screening plants! They are also fantastic foundation shrubs and anchor larger planting beds, adding curb appeal to your home! Their love of part shade lets them thrive under the shade of larger trees and shrubs, hiding their bare leggy stems and creating colorful woodland gardens!

Stewartstonian features incredible winter interest, keeping their leaves and that fall color throughout the cold months. Be sure to situate this fantastic shrub where you will see it from a window and always have a great view of greenery year-round and those bold blooms in spring!

  • Vibrant Red-Orange Blossoms
  • Stunning Green Broadleaf Evergreen
  • Hedges & Borders & Specimen
  • Privacy & Definition

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Azalea bushes prefer partial shade, favoring morning sun. Be sure to provide a thick layer of mulch so the shallow roots don’t dry out or become affected by heat and cold. Cold hardy in zones 5 through 8, these broadleaf evergreens shed old leaves during winter and replace them with new each spring!

  • Best in Partial Shade
  • Moderate Yet Consistent Moisture
  • Prune Right After Flowering
  • Well-Drained Enriched Acidic Soil
  • Loves Insulating Mulched Beds
