Everyone loves a Parade! This standout was selected as a Proven Performer by the American Rhododendron Society; dazzling pink flowers with glowing orange throats adorn this beauty in July. The immense summer appeal is enhanced by the light vanilla fragrance and bronze-green and orange foliage in fall.

Azaleas are flowering shrubs in the genus Rhododendron. A summer bloomer, Weston’s Parade is a superb backdrop to a perennial bed, a foundation plant or even planted en masse for a garden screen. Filtered sunlight is ideal, but morning full sun is okay.

Azalea General Information:

Azalea, considered to be evergreen or semi-evergreen, grow two sets of leaves. Their spring leaves are thinner, larger, and grow along the stems. In the fall, these leaves will be discarded. Summer leaves of this shrub are thicker, smaller, and are clustered near the branch ends. These leaves remain through winter, and depending on the variety, persist for several years.

Azalea Plant Care:

Good drainage is important since they dislike wet feet. Blooms on old wood, so prune to shape immediately after flowering to encourage bushier growth or cut branches to help renew overgrown plants. Fertilize in early spring. Pine needle mulch is beneficial.
