Growth Facts

The Story

Hybrid Evergreen Azaleas are the result of years of patient breeding work done using countless species and forms of these spectacular Accents. Because of the efforts of so many professional and amateur plant lovers, we now have a rainbow of colors to choose from when selecting Azaleas for our homes. Hino White is part of the Kurume Group of Azaleas, the first of which originated in Japan. Hino White was developed here in the U.S. by Tony Shammarello of South Euclid, Ohio (near Cleveland). He introduced the sharp new plant in 1964.

The Details

Fall color, too! Hino White Azalea puts on a lovely second performance when the weather turns cool. Its leaves turn a bronzy red color, and the show lasts a long time.

How to Grow

Azaleas appreciate a little pampering. They thrive when shielded from hot summer sun and given moist but well-drained, acidic soil. They never like to dry out but don’t care for soggy conditions, either. Azaleas can “burn” from harsh chemical fertilizers, so feed with a gentle organic product like Bower & Branch Elements™ Fertilizer. If pruning is needed, do it immediately after blooming, as next year’s flower buds are formed in summer. Of all the Azaleas on the market, Hino White is one of the most adaptable. It is hardy to -15ºF and can be successfully grown in many parts of the country.
