Pleasant White’ is a low growing (24-30 in) evergreen hybrid azalea  Most azaleas are evergreen shrubs and have attractive winter foliage, though some are deciduous.  ‘Pleasant White’ is a small-leaved shrub with fragrant pure white flowers in spring. 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.
