Azalea 'Hino Crimson', Rhododendron Kurume 'Hino Crimson', is a head turning flowering shrub when in bloom. The crimson-red, early florescence of this medium sized shrub is profuse and lush. Azaleas can be particular, and need partial shade and well drained soil to flourish. Given the right conditions, Azalea 'Hino Crimson' can't be beat for its exceptional beauty, when little else in the garden has started to bloom. Use as an early spring accent in a woodland garden or mixed border. It also makes a fine choice for foundation and container plantings. Glossy, green foliage makes it an attractive plant throughout the rest season.
