Product Details



    Rhododendron Indica 'Formosa' is a fast growing shrub that can be grown in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 7B through 7B. It matures to an average height of 6 feet to 8 feet and an average width of 6 feet to 8 feet, depending on climate and other environmental factors. It prefers growing in a location that provides full sun and grows best when planted in sand soil that is well drained. In the spring Formosa Azalea produces purple flowers. The foliage is dark green in color. It attracts wildlife and is resistant to drought.

    Formosa Azalea can be useful in the landscape along woodland borders and also in theme gardens.

    Noteworthy Characteristics

    The Formosa Azalea is one of the best of the sun and heat-tolerant Southern India Azaleas. It grows more rapidly than other types of azaleas to 8 feet tall with an equal spread. In spring, large, purple trumpet-shape flowers nearly cover the dark green evergreen foliage.

    Uses

    Formosa Azalea is most useful as a natural hedge or in small to large groupings in landscape beds. Performs exceptionally well under tall pine trees. Also useful in home foundation plantings, espalier (grown flat against a wall), or "limbed up" to be a small tree for containers or garden beds.

    Culture & Care Tips

    Azaleas prefer a well draining, moist and acidic soil rich in organic matter. As one of the Southern Indica Azaleas, Formosa will tolerate full sun to part shade. That being said, some dappled sun or shade during the hottest part of summer afternoons would be appreciated.
