Care

Native Azaleas are low maintenance shrubs that require little attention once they are established. Acid soil of pH 4.5-5.5, partial shade, and water during the time when the plant is establishing itself is all that is required to start growing these beautiful natives.
The above hybrids will grow 6-12 inches a year, according to growers. The first year will be the most crucial while the transplants are establishing themselves. Water faithfully during long and dry weather and fertilize with. azalea and camellia fertilizer and cottonseed meal prior to blooming. Trim or prune these natives only after they are finished blooming, if you need to trim at all. Native Azaleas need a moist, but not wet, soil rich in organic matter ( leaf mold, rotted sawdust, compost or peat moss are examples).A shifting sun and shade situation as under pines is ideal for their light requirements.ulch to conserve moisture with any organic material such as peanut hulls, pine bark or straw, etc.

Native Azaleas are generally free of insect and disease problems. Spider mites may be a slight problem on some varieties.

No pampering is required after the plant has when established. See BLOOM CHART

Hybridizing

Native azaleas, while a most attractive plants are difficult and extremely frustrating to classify or identify. There is great variability within some species and strong morphological characteristics are frequently absent. The difficulty is increased when one considers the innumerable natural hybrid forms often encountered.

To make the selection process easier Malloy's Nursery is providing a variety of Native Azaleas with specific charactereistics as mentioned above to enrich your understanding of these native beauties.

The Admiral Semmes, Varnadoe's Phlox Pink, Don's Varigated, Taylor Maid, Hotspur, the Viscosom and Flammeum hybrids are cultvars that have been developed to be carefree, adaptable to a variety of weather and moisture conditions, as well as, for wonderful blooming and reliable foliage growth.
