Plant Patent Applied For. Cultivar name: 'Farrow.'

At just two feet tall, the Bollywood™ Azalea rhododendron is as brilliantly colored as the name suggests. The dark green foliage with silver accents contrasts beautifully with the neon-colored magenta blooms. This ultra-compact plant is perfect for planting in partially shaded borders, along pathways and against foundations.

This shrub, created by Mike Farrow of Maryland, stands only 18 to 24 inches high. 30 inches in width is the maximum spread you can expect. The leaves of this adorable rhododendron are semi-evergreen and very eye-catching, lending appeal to the plant even when the flowers aren't blooming.

In late spring, the first blooms appear. The flowers continue well into summer, smothering the azalea in a blanket of brilliant color. Additionally, this plant is noted for its ability to attract butterflies and hummingbirds. The Bollywood™ Azalea is disease resistant, pest resistant and heat tolerant.

Because azaleas are shallow rooted, you should be careful not to cultivate the plant. Instead, consider mulching with leaf mold or pine needles. This covering will discourage the growth of weeds while at the same time protecting the roots of the plant.

Tougher than it looks!

I had my doubts as to whether or not this little shrub would actually tolerate full sun, especially in eastern NC, so I put it in a pot in case I had to relocate it. I was amazed how good it looked even in the August heat.
