|Patent Act||Asexual reproduction of plants protected by the Plant Patent Act is prohibited during the life of the patent.|

|Design Ideas||Mass this cultivar of azalea together in groupings, or mix with azaleas of harmonizing cultivars. Plant larger rhododendrons and camellias in back. Use this azalea in high light areas, as it tolerates sun. Good for plantings near the house or where foot traffic is high, as these often sunny areas seldom can support azaleas.|
|Companion Plants||This azalea works nicely with other Asian garden plants such as Cheals Weeping Cherry, (Prunus serrulata 'Kiku-shidare-zakura'), Oshio Beni Japanese Maple, (Acer palmatum 'Oshio-Beni') and Silver Dragon Liriope, (Liriope spicata 'Silver Dragon'). It's exceptional along side Orangee Flame Oregon Grape Holly, (Mahonia aquifolium 'Orangee Flame') or Deer Fern, (Blechum spicant).|
|Care||Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Provide well drained soil, rich in organic matter. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch.|
|Lore||Though they are known as azaleas, all azalea hybrids are technically members of the genus Rhododendron.|
