Klondyke Exbury Azalea is an opulent Accent that will bring a look of luxury to your beds and borders. In mid- to late spring, coppery orange buds appear, followed by large trusses of rich golden flowers, each highlighted with a hint of orange. When the morning or late afternoon sun shines through them, the blossoms gleam as brightly as a gold nugget. As if the satisfying picture they paint weren’t enough, the blooms have another endearing attribute—they give off an enticingly sweet fragrance. Plant Klondyke near your favorite patio spot or lounge chair, and relax in spring in high style!

Growth Facts

The Story

Deciduous Azaleas are the showboats of late spring, decadent Accents that offer delightful, funnel-shaped flowers in a rainbow of colors. Many of these are hybrid selections, carefully bred from among several different species from Asia and America. Klondyke Exbury Azalea is one such hybrid Azalea. The late Hans Hachmann, a prolific and talented German plant breeder, introduced this gem in 1991. He named it after the great Klondike Gold Rush of the 1890s. Hachmann learned the nursery business from his father, who owned a tree nursery. The young Hachmann developed a true passion for breeding plants, producing over 400 new varieties!

The Details

But wait, there’s more! Many Deciduous Azaleas supply not only sensational spring flowers but also striking fall color, and Klondyke Exbury Azalea is no exception. When nights turn frosty, this star takes the stage again, putting on a brilliant show of deep coppery-red foliage.

How to Grow

Deciduous Azaleas aren’t hard to grow, but it can be a little tricky to keep them looking sharp throughout the season. One issue they have is powdery mildew, which doesn’t kill the plant, but leaves a white film on the foliage. To guard against this affliction, provide Klondyke Exbury Azalea with the best possible growing conditions. Avoid extremes—give it good light but no hot afternoon sun, moist but not soggy soil, good air circulation but no strong winds. In addition, the soil should be rich with organic matter, well-drained, and acidic. Mulch to conserve moisture.
