Today, we purchased an Evergreen Azalea (Hino Crimson) at Costco. I planted it in full sun, knowing that azaleas tend to do better with some shade (filtered sunlight). However, another shopper insisted that she has azaleas in full sun locations that thrive. I will be watching this plant carefully and will move it to the backyard if need be.

Hardy to USDA Zone: 5

Description: Hardy evergreen azalea. Brilliant non-fading single crimson flower, low growing compact with small deep green leaves turning bronze in winter.

Care: Water thoroughly as needed during the growing season until established. Treat for diseases or insects as needed. Fertilize 1-3 times during the growing season.

The Azalea  should grow to be 2' to 3' tall and 2' to 3' wide.
