Campus Gardens

Azalea 'Rosebud'
Pink Azalea
Ericaceae, Heath

An evergreen azalea growing about 2-3 feet tall with a 2-3 foot spread. The pink double flowers range from 1-2 inches in diameter. This plant blooms on campus between the months of April and May. As for care, it is important that the plant has a good drainage system to avoid rotting of the roots. It is best if it is planted in a place that is kept clear of strong winds. Pinching off flowers after they fade keeps the plant look nicer. The amount of light that is preferred is partial sun and partial shade.

Hardiness zones: 3-5

Location on Campus: Several specimens are located in the gardens at the entrance of campus. (Areas 1a & b)
