This Azalea, commonly known as the Rhododendron ‘Kurume Hybrid’, is an evergreen shrub originally from Japan. Popular in the Bonsai culture, the ‘Kurume Hybrid’ was not exposed to the West until 1915.

With a dense foliage of small, yet stunning pink flowers that cover the branches, this shrub quickly became accepted. This azalea will typically grow to about three feet in height at a moderate growth rate and will bloom early to mid spring.
