Product information "Japanese Azalea 'Diamant Enzianblau'®"

The variety name 'Diamant Enzianblau'® is a bit misleading:  according to the name, one would think this azalea has blue flowers, but actually, the flowers of this valuable azalea breeding shine in a purple colour. They are funnel-shaped and wide open and appear starting in mid-May. A single flower has a diameter of 2 to 3 cm. Rhododendron obtusum  'Diamant Enzianblau'® blooms so rich that no foliage can be seen among the flowers.
Wintergreen foliage

The leaves can be quite impressive. They are ovate and have a fresh, green colour. Since they also shine very strongly, the foliage is (even without flowers) already very decorative and is a nice eye-catcher even in the winter.
Acidic soil is crucial

All Japanese azaleas love acidic soil conditions. The pH should be in the range between 4.5 and 5.5 for lasting prosperity. Improper soils can be improved by adding peat or rhododendron soil. Heavy, impermeable, loamy soil is unsuitable for Japanese azaleas.
Ideal for gardens and planters

Rhododendron obtusum  'Diamant Enzianblau'® grows very compact and like all Japanese azaleas rather wide than high. In old age, this variety reaches a height of 40 to 50 cm. It grows very slowly and is therefore ideal for small gardens. The reliably frost hardy garden plant thrives equally in the sun and shade and can also be grown permanently in planters.
