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.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

No Chemicals

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

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.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

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.
