Azalea 'Homebush' (Knaphill)
Common Name: Azalea - Homebush Azalea
Homebush forms rounded trusses of bright pink to salmon semi-double flowers in late spring. The truss shape looks similar to flowering snowball viburnum. The tepals are distinctly pointed.
Plant Care:Add a mulch of well-rotted garden compost or organic matter around the base of the plant each spring to encourage new growth to develop during the summer. Be careful not to plant too deep and incorporate lots of peat into the planting hole.
