Showy, bubblegum-pink flowers grace George L. Taber Azalea each spring. The blooms, which resemble orchid blooms, have some white variegation and deep pink spots near the top center. It will be hard for you and passersby to not just stop and stare at these pretty rhododendron flowers, which often appear again in fall. The foliage on George L. Taber is evergreen, so this is a pretty border or hedge plant for bright spring color and year-round interest in zone 8 to 10 landscapes.
George L. Taber Azalea boasts these beautiful blossoms plus the usual benefits of azalea shrubs. Evergreen leaves, tolerance to coastal air, easy care, and the ability to grow in filtered or partial shade or full sun are all great features of this azalea. It has a moderate, rounded growth pattern, eventually reaching 6 to 8 feet tall and 4 to 6 feet wide. The flowers attract butterflies. Consider the pretty pink and green of this plant for any landscape, and especially for Asian, Zen, or cottage garden styles.
