Mid-Atlantic

Evergreen azalea: ‘Tina’s Whorled’ (‘Koromo-shikibu’ X R. indicum hybrid)
This is a strikingly different azalea with strong reddish-purple strap-like petals held in a whorl. It grows about as wide as tall, reaching two to three feet in 10 years. It blooms in mid-season, is hardy to -23 C (-10 F), and is one of the best of Buck Clagett’s Bowie Mill hybrids, named for his wife.
