Azalea 'George L. Taber' is relatively easy to grow and maintain. It prefers partial shade to full sun and well-draining, acidic soil that's rich in organic matter. Provide afternoon shade in hotter climates to protect from searing sun exposure.
Add G&B Organics Acid Planting Mix to the native soil or use right out of the bag for container plantings. Immediately after planting, water your Azalea deeply and regularly to establish strong roots. George L. Taber Azalea prefers moist, well-drained soil for best growth but tolerates periodic dry soil once established. Overwatering and waterlogged soils will lead to rot.
Adding a top layer of Kellogg’s Organic Gromulch to the ground will keep the roots cool and retain moisture in soil.
Fertilize with Gardner & Bloome 4-5-2 Organic Rhododendron, Azalea & Camellia Fertilizer after the flowers are done blooming to maintain vigor and vibrancy.
With proper care and maintenance, Azalea 'George L. Taber' can be a stunning addition to any garden or landscape.
