|Compact Korean Azalea|
The new space was small. So when I found a Korean azalea labeled "compact", I thought I'd give it a try. Its mature size will only be four feet wide and two feet tall. When I bought this small cultivar (Azalea poukhanense 'Compacta'), it was out of bloom, but the picture on the attached label showed a rosy-purple flower.
When it bloomed this spring, it looked a bit more purple which I actually prefer. Combined with a bright green hosta in front, this new addition really adds a bright punch to this once forgotten corner of my garden.
