Uses Notes: 

This is a colorful addition to mixed borders. Use as an accent plant in beds or containers (plant in ground in fall if in a patio pot). The variegated foliage and small size make it good for edging walkways and other tight spaces.

Maintenance Notes: 

Loosen roots prior to planting. Good drainage is essential for this plant; water regularly, especially when newly planted. Little pruning is needed, but plants may be trimmed after flowering. Apply a controlled release fertilizer for hollies and rhododendrons in early spring. Plants in southern climates will benefit from some shade. Plants in northern climates may need some winter protection.

This plant has lots of color! Bright neon red-pink flowers engulf this compact semi-evergreen azalea in spring. Vivid, glossy silver and dark green variegated foliage supplies the color the rest of the year. This very hardy azalea was developed by plantsman Mike Farrow of Maryland.
