Azalea 'Red Demon' 2gal

With radiant flowers that are just as welcome in a tropical oasis as they are in an English cottage garden, Red Demon delivers bright, gorgeous color on a winter-hardy plant. Two-tone blooms are awash in rich color that adds depth and beauty to butterfly gardens or borders. This particular cultivar is a very strong pollinator lure, urging butterflies and bees by the hundreds to visit the landscape during the long mid spring to early summer bloom time. Plus, Red Demon boasts a longer lifespan compared to other azaleas. Planted in groups, it makes a fine flowering hedgerow or privacy screen, growing to 4 feet tall with a 5 foot spread.
