Why plant Formosa Azalea?
Wildly celebrated across the globe, we have the awe-inspiring Formosa Azalea. Nothing says spring like the giant blooms of the Formosa! Valiant in its ways of displaying such vibrant, large, showy blooms, it's no wonder so many people lust after this prized shrub. The Formosa's spectacular flowers have a wonderful lavender-pink hue to decorate any landscape. While exposing such a lavish blooms throughout the spring and summer months, this plant is evergreen, providing a lovely display, even during the winter season!
How to use Formosa Azalea in the landscape?
The fabulous blooms offered by the Formosa Azalea provide a visual spectacle to any landscape! We definitely recommend using this shrub as an accent to your entryway or as an anchor to a foundation planting. The Azalea also does well in mass plantings or used in hedges to add a vibrant pop color. The blooms of the Formosa Azaleas will bring different pollinators to your home, so planting outside windows can grant you a show of dancing butterflies during the spring months!

How To Plant Formosa Azalea
The Formosa Azalea, while being a rugged variety and capable of handling full sun, can also manage a planting location in slight shade. This shrub does require well draining soil with some acidity. Another tip - the Azalea needs air circulation, so we recommend giving at least six feet of distance from any building. Don't forget to tend to your garden and make sure you are dealing with any pesky weeds that may appear, as to not compromise the roots or growth of your Formosa!
How To Water
We recommend watering your Formosa Azalea regularly, keeping the soil moist. When first planted, and for a short time after planting, it's best to water every day or so for the first three months until the plant is fully established.
How To Fertilize
To fertilize your Azalea we recommend using our Elements Starter Plant Food in early spring for best growing results.
How To Prune
Pruning may be done to correct shape and reduce size after the spring blossoms begin to fade. However, don't wait too much longer after the flowers fade as this may threaten the next seasons' ability to bloom!

How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
