Magenta Blooms and Variegated Leaves!
A shrub as brilliantly colored and festive as its name would suggest, Bollywood™ delights with neon-bright blooms of reddish pink to magenta against dark green foligge with silver accents. Very compact, it's the ideal planting for the foundation, along the pathway, and in the partly shaded border.
Introduced by Mike Farrow of Maryland, this compact Azalea reaches just 18 to 24 inches high and not much wider -- 30 inches is about the maximum spread to expect. The foliage is semi-evergreen and very handsome, keeping it attractive even when the flowers are not present.
The blooms begin in late spring and continue reliably into summer, blanketing Bollywood™ in bright color. So much interest in so little space! You will love this exciting 2010 introduction. Zones 5-9.
