The Rhododendrons, of which Azaleas are one, are perhaps the most important and diverse group of plants in the world with over 1000 different species. Native to many locations, mainly in the northern hemisphere, they are at their most prolific in the vast mountain ranges and gorges bordering China, Tibet and Upper Myanmar They contain some of the most noble and stunning of all plants and when planted in well designed landscapes are almost unrivalled in their impact in spring. Today they have a dominant position in many of our parks and gardens, large and small. Geisha Purple is one of the series raised by Arends in Germany probably during the 1960s. In addition to stunning garden performace this series make good Bonsai subjects. Geisha Purple has small bright slightly reddish purple trumpet shaped flowers in profusion in May. A popular, easy and reliable Azalea. One important fact to note with virtually all Azaleas and Rhododendrons is the fact they are very intolerant of chalk/lime. Even small amounts will turn them chlorotic and unhealthy. Regular use of a suitable tonic (sequestered iron) will combat the effects of low levels of lime but it is far better to plant in lime free acid soils. Azaleas and Rhododendrons have shallow fibrous roots so an annual mulching with organic matter is very beneficial. This is best applied in autumn.
