Azalea augustipetalum aka Azalea laciniatum

ego45(6bCT)June 29, 2008

aka Rhododendron indicum 'Laciniatum' aka Rhododendron indicum 'Shide Satsuki'.

Too many names, practicaly none of the information.

Size, habit, sun requirement/tolerance etc.

Looking for any information.

TIA

The listing I found was R. "Laciniatum"

Indica azalea.

Hardiness zones: USDA 8a to 10a

Ken Cox says: Strap-like, deep yellowish-pink with a darker blotch. Low, dense and compact to 12" tall. Fred Galle's book has the same description except is says strong red. It is an old late-flowering variety.

Sounds like a Mother's day plant in CT. Probably best kept as a house plant in the winter.

Thank you.
Well, another potted plant in collection...:-(
Will see how it will bloom next year and decide if it worth to bother.
Anyway, somehow some of Satsuki hybrids survive and bloom in my garden (in a super protected locations).
