Rhododendron japonicum syn. Azalea japonica belong to the genus Rhododendron and the family of heathers Ericaceae. Azalea japonica are dwarf, slow-growing, evergreen shrubs, reaching their maximum growth on average after 10 years. Their partial loss of leaves in winter makes them tolerate lower temperatures better than other rhododendron species. Thanks to their compact structure and compact form, Japanese azaleas are ideal for planting in containers on terraces and balconies. In gardens, they blend particularly well near ponds or pools, adding romantic charm to the surroundings. They bloom profusely, covering themselves with colorful flowers, and group plantings create beautiful, single-colored or multicolored carpets. The flowers maintain their charm for about 3 weeks, depending on prevailing weather conditions.
Azalea japonica ‘Elsie Lee‘ is a semi-evergreen, slow-growing, bushy shrub with glossy leaves and a compact habit. The large, double flowers of ‘Elsie Lee‘ have an unusual color for Japanese azaleas – light lilac with delicate dark pink spotting on some of the petals. Azaleas require sunny or semi-shaded locations, acidic, humus-rich, and permeable soil.
