Azalea Scarlet Gem is a compact evergreen shrub with dark-green foliage. In late winter to early spring, masses of small, hose-in-hose bright-red blooms make a spectacular show. Most azalea flowers have a small cup of green leaves (sepals) at the base of the flower tube. This set of leaves is called a calyx. If this is genetically modified, either by nature or breeding, into a complete set of petals, the flower is called hose-in-hos. They appear behind the normal 5 petals, peeking out from between. Perfect for pots or garden beds that receive dappled shade.

Soil: Requires moist, well-drained, slightly acidic soil.
Conditions: Full sun to part shade. Protect from hot sun and winds. Frost and coastal tolerant.
Size: Height 1.5m x width 1.5m
