Item added to cart!

‘Pink Macrantha’ is a dense, average-sized (2-5 feet) evergreen hybrid azalea.  Most azaleas are evergreen shrubs and have attractive winter foliage, though some are deciduous.  ‘Pink Macrantha’ has small green leaves that turn red in cold winters and double-petaled pink flowers begin to bloom in mid-spring through summer and may experience another bloom between then.  Old flowers persist in a dried state on the plant.  ‘Pink Macrantha’ is a slow grower that can be slightly leggy with a typical 1 ft clearance.  Evergreen azaleas are not very cold hardy; cold winters may freeze the flower buds and reduce bloom come spring, and leaves may experience winter burn.  A very versatile plant that prefers partial sun with acidic rich, well-drained soils.  Azaleas are excellent pollination and butterfly attractors.
