Azalea x 'Maraschino'

SKU
09528
Luxuriant carmine-red blooms cover glossy dark green foliage as it drifts through the garden blanketing perennial borders with beautiful late spring color. When cool weather arrives, the evergreen foliage turns a handsome black-purple color. A low growing, spreading habit that creates a wonderful ground cover.
