About Trouper Azalea

The Trouper Azalea is a fantastic spring-blooming rhododendron. This selection produces glowing reddish-orange blooms in spring. Watch and be amazed as these blossoms emerge in considerable numbers every year in late spring, and transform the appearance of this shrub for weeks to follow.

Evergreen foliage emerges as a light green before maturing to an emerald hue.

The Trouper Azalea matures to 4-5′ H x 4-5′ W. Therefore, it naturally won’t engulf your landscape. Rather, it tends to grow in a compact, dense spread.

Try it in a container, hedge, mass planting, border, or mixed bed.

Plant it with contrasting color and texture plants for maximum effect, such as the Night Light Chamaecyparis or Sunshine Ligustrum.

Trouper Azalea Care

Hardy from USDA Zones 7-9

Plant in Partial Sun for best results.  Filtered Sun for much of the day or 2-3 hours of direct sun a day is sufficient. Too much sun will stress the plant, while too little sun will result in decreased foliage and bloom potential.

This rhododendron has only medium water requirements once established. For the first growing season, provide supplementary water 2-3 times a week in average weather conditions.

The Trouper Azalea prefers acidic to neutral soil for best results. In addition, ensure that the soil drains well in order to avoid root rot.

Fertilize in early spring with a balanced acidic plant fertilizer. This will help ensure future growth and blooms, as well as promote the overall well-being of your plant.

Trim after the bloom cycle has ended. The Trouper Azalea, like other yearly blooming rhododendrons, begins compiling the next years blooms after the end of the current years cycle. Trimming too late will decrease the amount of potential blooms for the next year.

Trouper Azalea Spacing 

To create a seamless hedge we recommend planting 3′ apart and to create individual shrubs plant at least 5′ apart
