Azalea 'Dr Van Slyieken' Details

“Dr Van Slyieken” is a variety of Azalea grown for its lovely form and profuse flowering. This hardy, evergreen shrub produces masses of fragrant, red blooms through autumn and spring. It typically grows to 1.2 m tall and the same wide, growing best when planted in a semi-shade or full sun position on a well-drained, sheltered site. When grown in full sun it tends to be more compact. Plants are tolerant of frost and cool climates, but do require good soil moisture levels during dry periods. When fertilising, avoid using lime as this will stunt or even kill plants. “Dr Van Slyieken” is a great choice for adding to a mixed or border planting, planting around outdoor living areas such as pool and barbecue area, including in cottage gardens, or using anywhere a stunning plant is required. Mass planting provides for an amazing display with this variety.
