Nuccio's Carnival Azalea

|Design Ideas||Suitable beside a short flight of steps or even under a low window, this three- foot-tall, rose-red Azalea will provide sustained color in a smaller-scale landscape. The bright red color looks particularly handsome against wood and stone facades.|
|Companion Plants||Keep the scale small by mixing with a selection of dwarf, acid-loving shrubs, such as the white-flowering Prelude Pieris (Pieris taiwanensis 'Prelude') and Compact Oregon Grape Holly (Mahonia aquifolium 'Compacta'), with its deep-green foliage that turns to purplish-red in winter.|
|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||Large Southern Indica azaleas distinguish most of the great old gardens of the South including historic plantation homes.|
