GG Gerbing Azalea Care
We recommend that you follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. The evergreen azalea prefers well drained soil, rich in organic matter or slightly acidic soil. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom and keep the roots cool with a thick layer of mulch to retain moisture during the heat of summer and colder months of winter.
This slow growing rhododendron will grow up to 4-6 feet tall and wide at full maturity. The GG Gerbing Azalea growth rate is up to 4-8 inches per year. Choose a planting spot that it can stay at in partial sun to partial shade.
