The large white flowers of the Irish Crème Azalea will truly brighten up any garden when they bloom in spring. Also known as Rhododendron 'Irish Crème', this ornate Azalea develops large white flowers with a green-yellow center that almost completely covers its dark green foliage when it blooms. Growing to around 3 to 5 feet tall, the Irish Crème Azalea is a versatile shrub with many garden uses.

Being an evergreen, the foliage of the Irish Crème Azalea stands well throughout the winter in USDA zones 6 to 10. With a mound-forming habit, it is easy to care for and will attract butterflies and hummingbirds when the blooms open in spring. Add it to a mixed border or create a low-growing, flowering hedge to define a property line. 

Irish Crème Azalea Care

The Irish Crème Azalea is happiest when it is grown in either filtered or dappled shade. It prefers an acidic soil that is fertile, moist and well drained. Irrigate regularly after planting and until established to keep the soil moist but not saturated. To give it a boost you can apply an ericaceous fertilizer after the blooms have finished. 

Its shape and size can be maintained by gently pruning after the flowers fade. Applying an annual mulch of organic matter in spring will help reduce moisture loss and weed growth.

Irish Crème Azalea Spacing

When mature, the Irish Crème Azalea can reach 3 to 5 feet tall and wide. If planting en masse, space this azalea around 4 to 6 feet apart depending on the desired effect.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
