Arneson Gem Azalea

Brighten up that Shade Garden
This stunning azalea only grows to about 2-3'. It's compact enough to feature in a container, so you can bring fire to wherever your landscape needs a little more flavor. Azaleas like some shade, so you can really brighten a woodland garden with Arneson Gem. It's strong and floriferous, performing beautifully even in zone 4, which is too cold for most azaleas. It's also resistant to Verticillium wilt—really, it's an all around fantastic azalea. It's no surprise the renowned azalea hybridizers who bred this gem, Ivan and Robertha Arneson, chose to give it their own surname!
