In midspring this small to medium-sized evergreen shrub literally covers itself in a cloak of hundreds of multi-hued pink funnel-shaped flowers with a near white throat,rose-red outer edges, and with a nicely contrasting red flecking on the upper most petals, a.k.a. standards. Hampton Beauty Azalea is a compact densely growing rounded evergreen shrub well suited to the garden, landscape, and is small enough to enjoy as a container plant or a bonsai specimen. This has long been one of our favorites due to the immense show it puts on in the spring making it a standout among its peers. Provide a moist but well-drained, humus-rich, acid soil for optimum vigor and flowering.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
