Purple Formosa Azalea

Purple Formosa Azalea (Rhododendron indica 'Formosa Purple') is a popular flowering shrub known for its stunning purple blooms. It is a hybrid of two Japanese azalea species, R. indicum and R. kiusianum, and was developed in the early 1900s.

Purple Formosa Azalea shrubs can grow up to 6-8 feet tall and 5-6 feet wide, and have a dense, upright habit. The leaves are dark green and glossy, and turn yellow in the fall. The flowers are about 2-3 inches in diameter and appear in clusters in the spring. They have a mild, sweet fragrance and attract pollinators such as bees and butterflies.

Purple Formosa Azalea is a low-maintenance plant that is easy to grow. It prefers full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. It is tolerant of a wide range of soil types and pH levels, but it does not like to be in soggy soil.

Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
