Azalea japonica "Amoenum" of the group of Kurume hybrids. Species of Japanese Origin introduced in Europe (England) around the year 1860, it was crossed with R: Indicum giving life to several hybrids (Amoena hybrids). The typical Azalea Amoena has small and compact pattern, small flowers of 1 "or less, purple on, hose in hose. The variety present in my greenhouse is probably "Amoena coccinea" and corresponds to the description just made. Very resistant Azalea, it is covered with purple flowers at the end of March. In winter the leaves turn their colour towards the Bordeaux (as in photo), making the plant decorative even this season. Suitable for a first row seat or (with a little patience) to form small hedges. Delicious like most Kurume azaleas.
The plants are part of a personal collection, for hobby and great passion in time selected, multiplied and cultivated by me under shady network outdoors, without forcing. The name and characteristics refer to the classification of Prof. Fred C. Galle in the book "Azaleas" Oregon. The photos of the flower and potted plants are of my mother plant and of the plants put on sale.
The seedlings shipped with a ground bread corresponding to the 14 cm vase, compact plate ready to be transplanted into the ground or vase. They're 6 to 10 inches tall.
The seedlings that are shipped in plate corresponding to pot 18, have crown 18. The big plants have 25 crowns. Having a well-rooted clod can be transplanted at any time.
Attention: -In autumn and winter the seedlings can be presented with yellow or red leaves or partly deleafed in the lower part of the branch. These are not diseases, but only a reaction to the cold because plants are left to grow naturally: in the spring will resume their color and normal growth. -In spring the plants are shipped even if in bloom: I do not guarantee that the buds or the already large flowers arrive intact!!! If you want other colors, other varieties or larger quantities not present in my ads, please contact me.
