Care Thrives in humus-rich, acidic, moist, well-drained soils. Shelter from harsh sun exposures in hot summer areas. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, maintain evenly moist soil. Keep roots cool with a layer of mulch. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom.
Lore The Kurume azaleas are preferred for the art of bonsai due to their smaller stature and diminutive leaves.
