Enjoy the Girard Pink Evergreen Azalea from early spring through to fall. Welcome spring in April and May with a showy profusion of crimson pink flowers. The intense blooms almost cover the entire low-growing shrub. The foliage remains green throughout the season turning bronze tones in the fall. This compact, tidy shrub is very hardy and pairs well with a Chaenomeles Japanese Quince to liven up shrub borders.
