Azalea ‘Snow’




A lovely feature for almost any garden, Azalea Snow creates that dramatic spring flower show with its creamy white blooms and pale green throats. When it’s done with its bloom, the dark green leaves remain on the shrub for the remainder of the year, providing that valuable evergreen structure in winter months. Like most azaleas, Snow shines in the part sun/dappled shade conditions, and if you’re planning to add it to your Texas garden, be sure to provide afternoon dappled shade so it thrives and blooms well without sun damage. Expect to water it deeply and regularly during the first year as it gets established and puts down roots, then regular watering after that. A late winter/early spring fertilizing will boost that flower power, as will a light pruning after bloom is finished for the season.
