Add colour and beauty to your garden with the Azalea Cha Cha. This small, evergreen shrub, produces masses of large, double blooms of cerise with a white centre, during spring. It is ideal for pots and containers on shady patios or balconies. It can also be planted en masse to create big displays of colour. Azaleas like rich top soil and for many areas with poor quality or clay soils, it would be advisable to build up the soil with decomposed organic material rather than digging down into the clay.

To plant your Azalea, dig the hole twice as wide and as deep as the container. Remove plant from the container and place into the hole so that the soil level is the same as the surrounding ground. Plant in free draining, humus rich soil. Azaleas prefer acidic soil, so do not apply lime. Cultivate soil prior to planting.
Keep soil moist and water well during extended dry periods. Mulch to retain moisture.
Prune this plant after flowering to increase flowering.
