SneIrish's Rhododendron x 2 Blooming

Plant: Dwarf azalea (Rhododendron) |

  • 0
  • Very Happy

When we moved here in 1987, these two Rhododendrons were planted one on each side of the front steps. The one on the left-Gnome has bright pink flowers and the other on the right-Welcome side is a bit more purple. To me, they define the end of Borders at the end of the steps. They have continued to grow steadily and well over the years. We often prune them a bit so they don’t totally obscure the front door and steps. They are a hang-out for hundreds of birds all year round, especially the Chickadees and little brown Sparrows. They are getting so content and familiar that sometimes they don’t bother to fly away when you go in or out.
The first picture is on the Welcome side and the second is on the Gnome side.

SneIrish's Rhododendron Care Instructions

Dwarf azalea can grow to a height of approximately 120.25 feet (that's 37.00 metres in metric) so ensure you have enough space in your garden for this plant.

Your garden has partial sun light, which is a great match for Dwarf azalea.

Remember to water moderately.

Your garden's USDA Hardiness Zone (6b) is within the ideal range for Dwarf azalea. The recommended range is between Zone 4 and 8.

A soil ph of between 5.0 and 6.5 is ideal for Dwarf azalea as it does best in acidic soil so test your soil acidity often.
