White Lights azalea is a multi-stemmed deciduous shrub that grows slowly, reaching a final height and width of about 5 feet. White Lights is completely smothered in pinkish-white fragrant blossoms in mid-spring. Like most azaleas, it prefers a partly shaded site, with protection from afternoon sun, such as on a northerly or eastern frontage. It requires a rich acidic well-drained, but consistently moist soil and will demonstrate chlorosis (leaf yellowing) in alkaline soils. Prune immediately after flowering and mulch the root zone in the fall for winter protection. The fall color is peachy-apricot and can be exceptional in a good year.
