Product information "Japanese Azalea 'Königstein'"

Flowers: Purple-violet, with slight, dark markings
Final height: Approx. 50 cm
End width: Approx. 80 cm
Flowering period: From the beginning to end of May
The flowers of the Japanese Azalea 'Königstein' are not to be overlooked: they shine in an intense purple-violet and have a good long-range effect. The numerous buds open from mid-May to large, star-like flowers with a diameter of up to 4 cm and a pretty dark red marking in the middle. In addition, Rhododendron obtusum 'Königstein' convinces with its richness: the flowers are close together and cover the entire plant.
Compact growth

'Königstein' grows dense and compact and reaches only a height of 40 to 50 cm, even after many years. With so much compactness, pruning is not necessary. The small, ovate leaves stay on the plant in the winter and provide fresh green splashes of colour.
For beds and containers

The Japanese azalea 'Königstein' beautifies every garden with its lively purple-violet flower colour. It grows equally well in the sun and partial shade and can be combined well with other azaleas and rhododendrons, lavender heathers and perennials such as hostas, Bergenia or Heuchera. In planters, the reliably hardy beauty thrives on terraces, in entrance areas or courtyards. The decisive factors are the correct soil conditions: rich in humus and acidic (pH 4.5 to 5.5)!
