Azalea Anchorite - Evergreen?

pacnwjudy(z8 OR)April 18, 2007

I live in Portland, Oregon, zone 8. A few years ago I got the azalea Anchorite and each winter it's been losing all its leaves and then more or less growing more of them, although not in such a lush way as when I got the plant. And each year it's blooming like you wouldn't believe, each year more fabulous than the last.

I have many evergreen azaleas, and Anchorite is supposed to be one of those. I've never had one lose its leaves except Anchorite. I wonder what gives.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Some of the evergreen Glenn Dale Azaleas naturally drop leaves during colder weather. Anchorite is one such example so do not worry.
