Around late spring to early summer, Delaware Valley White Azalea begins her show by flaunting a most magnificent presentation of lightly perfumed, snow white blossoms. These flowers are velvety soft, smooth and uniquely shaped like delicate trumpets. 

The flowers form in striking clusters at the ends of the branches and remain intact for a few weeks. The Delaware Valley White, combined with other azalea varieties such as our Autumn Debutante Encore or our Autumn Royalty Encore make for a wonderful accent border around a deck or front porch. 

The Delaware Valley White is considered an evergreen shrub, so even in the thick of winter you’ll have a pleasing looking plant in your landscape. The slender and somewhat coarse, brilliant green leaves progress to a dazzling yellow at the onset of fall for a showy cool weather presentation. 

At maturity, this azalea bush reaches heights of 3-4 feet with a 3-4 foot spread and exhibits a slightly rounded natural shape. The Delaware White can dwell in full sun, but prefers partial sun to shade. 

The Delaware Valley White is considered a low maintenance shrub, requiring only minimal pruning after flowering. It does best in well-drained, acidic soil and can be expected to live for 40 years or more with little effort on your part. 

For best results, fertilize this azalea bush once a year and you will be rewarded with a particularly enhanced gift of flowers and shiny leaves. 

This gorgeous shrub is extremely popular, as it has no negative characteristics to speak of. It’s a no-brainer you’re going to want to plant a number of these Delaware Valley White azaleas in your garden today.

It's Easy to Plant your Delaware Valley White Azalea


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Delaware Valley White Azalea.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Delaware Valley White Azalea gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Delaware Valley White Azalea again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

This is my 'back bone' azalea. You can never do too much white in the garden.This bush will get huge and can be pruned regularly and severely to keep about 4'x4'.My mature DVW are 10'H x 14' W. Look at the photo they show! Do not try to use under windows.

I have planted 4- 3 gallon Delaware Azalea bushes in july with your extended fertilizer. Some of the leaves are yellow and they are not as full as when they were planted. They are planted along a fence and have plenty of sun and good drainage.
My question is what should I do to prepare them for Chicago winter?

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
