Rhododendron STARSTYLE® PINK

Cultivar denomination: 'AZAARE01' PBR

StarStyle® Pink azaleas have a unique foliage and flower shape that is truly innovative compared to other azalea varieties. Originally, it's a cross between Rhododendron stenopetalum ‘Linearifolium’ and Rhododendron simsii, followed by further crosses and back crosses over many years. Each plant forms a dense rounded mound of shiny foliage. The flowers that follow almost cover the leaves – creating a profusion of extraordinarily lovely, star-shaped blooms. The pink flowers look like firecrackers.  The plant’s winter hardiness is not full in Poland - it can be planted in the ground only in the warmest parts of the country. In garden beds, mature plants will reach sizes of around 40 x 50 centimeters.  StarStyle® Pink is worry-free and needs no fussy attention, it can have a place in every home – on a table, indoors or out. Outside or in, StarStyle ® Pink azalea will flower for four weeks.  It is happy growing in a container on a balcony or terrace, kept in cool rooms during the winter.
