These blooming shrubs can be planted as specimens or in groups, the choice is yours. However, if you decide on planting Azaleas in groups, we recommend you combine varieties with different flowering times. This way, you can create a floral display that lasts throughout seasons, rather than one season of blossoms who compete for attention. As Azalea Blaauw’s Pink is a mid-season bloomer, you’ll need late season evergreen Azaleas. Consider stunning varieties such as Azalea Satan, Azalea Homebush, or Azalea Golden Sunset which all flower in June.
How To Care for Evergreen Azalea Azalea Blaauw’s Pink is a great fusion plant in mixed borders with other azaleas. Planted in full sun or partial shade will look at its best. The soil should be acidic, moist and free draining. The fact that it is low maintenance is another advantage of this variety. Blaauw’s Pink can be trimmed after flowering once a year.
Azaleas in pots should be fed with slow release ericaceous fertilizer.
