The large coral-pink blooms of the Watchet Azalea will brighten up your garden wherever you plant it. Also known botanically as Rhododendron x 'Watchet', this evergreen azalea grows to around 2 to 3 feet high, making it a versatile plant. Flowering in late spring, the funnel-shaped flowers may also rebloom sporadically over the summer.

Over time, the Watchet Azalea develops a compact form of dense branches. Once established, it requires minimal ongoing care and is ideal for low-maintenance landscapes. This azalea is perfectly suited to growing in a mixed bed or border or for growing as a specimen in a large container or planter. 

Watchet Azalea Care

For the Watchet Azalea to thrive and for the best flowering display, plant it in partial or dappled sun. It prefers a slightly acidic soil that is fertile and moist, but well drained. Water frequently after planting until established; from there on, water to keep the soil on the moist side, especially during hot weather. Mulch annually and fertilize if necessary in early spring, with an ericaceous feed.

You can lightly prune the Watchet Azalea for shape after the flowers fade. It blooms on old wood, so do not wait too long in the season to shape the branches. When grown in a container, more frequent irrigation will be needed to prevent the soil from drying out. 

Watchet Azalea Spacing

The Watchet Azalea can grow to a mature size of 2 to 3 feet tall and 3 to 5 feet wide. Plant at a spacing of 3 to 5 feet apart, or grow it on its own in a container large enough to house the rootball.

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.
