Rhododendron indicum 'Coral Bells'

Description

'Coral Bells' is a dwarf evergreen cultivar of the Kurume Azaleas with showy pink flowers that appear in the spring.  It grows at a medium pace to a height of 2-6 feet and a width of 3-6 feet.  Plant in a location where it will receive partial shade and where you can provide regular watering.  The showy pink flowers are abundant even on newly planted shrubs.

This plant works well in a shrub border, in a woodland garden, or planted in containers on a patio.  This cultivar is highly susceptible to Phytophthora root rot, so practice good cultural conditions where you plant.
