Azalea Hot Shot is an excellent variety of Japanese Azaela. It’s a small, low spreading, evergreen, ornamental shrub. The clusters of trumpet-shaped, lightly-scented, fiery orange and scarlet flowers emerge in mid spring before the leaves. Small, glossy, green and silver leaves have attractive pale creamy margins and turn dark yellow-green in winter. Azalea Hot Shot requires rich, fertile, acidic, well-drained soils to thrive. Alkaline soils will cause the yellowing of leaves. It prefers full sun to partial shade, but it needs to be sheltered from direct sun and strong winds. It performs well on north and east-facing slopes. It is sensitive to toxic juglones produced by walnut roots and susceptible to some insect and disease problems. Azalea Hot Shot is stunning as a specimen plant or planted in groups. It is perfect for mixed borders, shrub borders, hedges, and for growing in pots and containers. It’s important to know that all types and all parts of azalea bushes are considered poisonous.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
