|Azalea indica 'G.G. Gerbing' is in the Southern Indian or Indica group of Azaleas. These Azaleas are spring blooming and the foliage is evergreen and the plants have an upright growth habit. The G.G. Gerbing Azalea has a pure white single flower that can reach 3" in diameter, this Azalea blooms profusely during the spring. They grow best in morning sun and afternoon shade in your gardening region. Water as you do your other azaleas and feed them all with an acidified fertilizer formulated especially for Rhododendrons and Azalea. Feed in the spring after the flowers are spent. Best wishes with your new azalea!
