The Q&A Archives: Shrub, possible Evergreen or perennial

Question: Last year I bought & planted something only named Peggy Ann, Pink & White. It looks similar to an azalea, but cannot find anything on it. Can you help?Thank you for any information possible.

Answer: What you have is an evergreen azalea, officially called ?Roehr?s Peggy Ann?. It's a late blooming azalea, hardy to -5?F. Its creamy pastel pink to white centers yield to light rose-purple margins on these 2" ?hose-in-hose? blooms. Flowers are further graced by flecks of matching rose-purple, and chartreuse pistil and stamens add the illusion of a pale lime eye deep in the corolla. This plant maintains a compact form. Hope this clarifies things for you!
