The Pink Ruffle Azalea is everything you love about Azaleas and more. Also known as Rhododendron rutherfordiana x 'Pink Ruffles’, this cultivar boasts showy, bright pink, trumpet-shaped, double flowers with ruffled petals. Two rows of petals add even more color and dimension. Dark pink spots near the eye elevate the drama. Expect a prolific bloom session in the spring and a lighter, second flush of flowers in the fall. Dark green foliage complements the lovely flowers.

The compact form makes the Pink Ruffle Azalea an excellent candidate for a low hedge. Plant it along a foundation wall, border, or any spot with a lot of foot traffic so you can fully enjoy the blooms. Feature the Pink Ruffle Azalea in a container for flexible placement options on a deck or patio. This shrub is a broadleaf evergreen that retains its foliage all year.

Pink Ruffle Azalea Care

Deeply water this shrub for the first year. Apply a thick layer of mulch to retain moisture. Once established, azaleas continue to need water when the soil dries out. Select a spot that receives partial sun. Plants grown in hot climates benefit from dappled light, while plants in cool climates can handle more sun. Plant shrubs in rich, acidic soil that is moist and well drained. Apply a slow-release fertilizer for acid-loving evergreens in the spring.

Azaleas have a pleasing natural shape, but prune as needed after the first blooms fade. Plants in a wind-swept area may need winter protection. 

Pink Ruffle Azalea Spacing

The Pink Ruffle Azalea reaches 2 to 4 feet tall and wide. Plant shrubs 2 to 3 feet apart, center to center, to create a hedge. One shrub can grow in a 16-inch container. Select a container that is more wide than deep to accommodate the shallow root system.

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.
