Rhododendron simsii seed
The azalea is a must havefor enthusiasts, it is extremely versatile, being able to be styled in almost any form, and is the most spectacular flowering bonsai, with beautiful springtime blooms in shades of white, pink, red, or salmon. It’s easy to grow and extremely beautiful. This azalea is also a favorite landscape shrub for temperate and tropical climates.
In outdoor use, species prefers rich, moist, acid soil in light to medium shade, protected from winds. Plants grow with several hours of direct sun but prefer filtered shade from tall trees. This azalea is more tolerant of adverse conditions, including drought, than other azaleas, but the soil must be open and porous, yet able to retain water well. It tolerates sun better than other Azaleas. A thick (3 inches deep) mulch is recommended to help ensure adequate root growth, as roots remain in the top several inches, even in sandy, well-drained soil.
