Rosea Azaleas - Knowledgebase Question

Question by fwcochran

Abouut 18 years ago I planted a hedge of Rosea Azaleas in fron of my front porch. Over the years I have lost a few plants and now the hedge does not look so good. I absolutely love the Rosea but know you haven't been producing the plant for at least 8 years.

Do you a a similar azalea which I can use to replace my hedge? I plan to relocate the Roseas. The plants will get morning sun and shade for most of the hot part of the day.

Thanks for your help,

Fred Cochran

Kermesina rosea azalea has a unique candystriped pink and white flower. While no longer available, Monrovia carries
Azalea indica 'Tickled Pink' with single rose-pink flowers edged in white; Azalea `Higasa` (Satsuki hybrid) bearing huge pink and white single flowers; Azalea indica 'California Sunset' with variegated white and deep pink double blooms; and Azalea `Gumpo White` (Satsuki hybrid) featuring single frilled white flowers with pink flakes. Hope one of these will make a great substitute for your beloved rosea azaleas!
