This plants seems to grow very fast. I bought it last year and it has doubled in size and I'm still waiting for the blooms to be able to judge it's beauty...still early spring, but it does seem to be happy where it is placed, which has been in full sun.

The Golden Lights Hardy Azalea is one tough plant. The azalea plant is tailor-made for northern weather conditions as it can survive in temperatures as low as -30 degrees Fahrenheit! Beautiful as it is strong, the azalea plant is laced with large orange-yellow buds that burst open revealing radiant yellow bloom trusses perfect for adorning any rock wall or border with a spectacular touch of color.

The Golden Lights Hardy Azalea's yellow flower measures an impressive 1.5-Inches, appearing in trusses up to 12 in number. The yellow azalea is accompanied with dark green foliage in the summer in contrast to the foliage's rich red color in the fall. Flowering between the late spring and early summer, the Golden Lights Hardy Azalea strives in well-drained, humus enriched, acidic soil, ranging from 4.0 to 5.5 pH, and only requiring partial to full shade to achieve a healthy, moderate growth rate. Reflective heat and light can be damaging to the azalea plant so avoid south facing walls. Planting the azalea plant in areas where the wind is minimal is also important to ensure vigorous growth. Keeping the azalea plant strong and beautiful is a simple endeavor only requiring pruning to remove dead wood and to maintain its shape. The Golden Lights Hardy Azalea's root system is very shallow so observe caution when digging around the plant.

The Golden Lights Hardy Azalea, boasting its yellow azaleas, rich foliage, and disease resistance capabilities, balances beauty with durability.
