Rhododendron x 'George L. Taber'

Rhododendron x (George Taber Azalea)

George Taber Azalea

Flowers in spring with light pink with darker tone center stripes. Acidic soil in light to medium shade, protected from winds, is an ideal location for these Azaleas. Plants grow fine with several hours of direct sun but grow best in filtered shade from tall trees. This Azalea is more tolerant of adverse conditions, including drought, than other Azaleas, but the soil must be open and porous, yet able to retain water well. It tolerates sun better than other Azaleas. Incorporate compost or other organic matter into the landscape bed before planting to enhance root growth after planting. A thick (3 inches deep) mulch is recommended to help ensure adequate root growth. Roots are located in the top several inches, even in sandy, well-drained soil. Azaleas transplant easily almost any time of year.
