Azalea mollis Glowing Embers

Azalea Glowing Embers

A stunning azalea, Rhododendron Glowing Embers is a deciduous shrub with a rounded habit. The leaves emerge with a reddish-bronze flush, setting off the flowers brilliantly. Orange-red buds open to golden-orange, scented, trumpet-shaped flowers from April to May, giving a fiery effect, which can be enhanced with orange, red or yellow flowers, or cooled with blue flowers like bluebells. Don’t plant azaleas too deeply. Azaleas have shallow roots, so mulch thickly with leaf-mould in early spring to conserve moisture. Prune if necessary as soon as the flowers fade, as the new buds form in July. Azalea Glowing Embers can also be grown in ericaceous compost in a large container.
