The Nuccio's Wild Cherry Azalea is a springtime bloomer with an impressive floral display. Trumpet-shaped flowers are vibrant cherry red and have ruffled petals that add extra dimension. Dark red splotches on the interior of the uppermost petal provide a subtle detail and even more visual interest. The Azalea x satsuki 'Nuccio's Wild Cherry' is a broadleaf evergreen with ovate, dark green foliage.

This shrub has a natural mounded form that looks full without any pruning. Create a hedge or lovely flowering border around an outdoor entertaining area. Plant Nuccio’s Wild Cherry along a walkway or foundation wall to soften hard edges. This shrub is easy to maintain and does not require much attention once acclimated. Fragrant flowers appeal to pollinators like bees, hummingbirds, and butterflies.

Nuccio's Wild Cherry Azalea Care

The Nuccio's Wild Cherry Azalea thrives in part sun with about 5 hours of sunlight per day. An area with morning sun and afternoon shade will set this shrub up for success. Water weekly or when the soil is dry. Spread organic mulch around the base to retain moisture and protect the shallow root system. Use an acidic fertilizer or a product intended for Rhododendrons annually in the spring.

Azaleas set flower buds the year before blooming, so prune after the flowers fade to avoid interfering with next year’s blooms. Wrap the shrub in landscape fabric for the first few winters when growing Nuccio’s Wild Cherry in the colder reaches of its growing zones.

Nuccio's Wild Cherry Azalea Spacing

The Nuccio's Wild Cherry Azalea grows 3 to 4 feet tall and wide. Plant shrubs 3 to 4 feet apart, center on center, when creating a continuous hedge.

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.
