Beautiful little azalea
Was looking for a low growing evergreen variety azalea to be a feature in front of a boulder in my garden. This one was it. Tolerated being in a pot for the entire winter/spring season when I couldn't plant it due to the quick onset of this past 2013-2014 severely cold winter. Now that it is in the ground, it is growing/thriving even more and is the perfect fit. The blooms are nicely variegated from white to peach to pink all in one bloom. It's bright green leaves look stunning against black mulch with a grey/brown boulder behind. Very pleased with this plant.
