Elegance and Style in One Graceful Shrub

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.

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.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for 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.

Planting & Care

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.

We have gotten azaleas a number of times from Fast Growing Trees. They have always arrived in good shape and just as ordered. They have transplanted into the ground well and thrive to this day. We actually get comments from passersby and we love our garden. We have a lot more red and pink, so we thought this beautiful white would even things out --- not to mention becoming a star in the garden! We love Fast Growing Trees!

If I order 3 Delaware valley white azaleas do I also need to purchase 3 transplant fertilizers ?and I live in Chicago will they wheatear fine here?
Julia C on Jun 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: One packet will treat two plants, so you would probably need two packets to do your three plants. As for this Azalea growing in Chicago, which is listed by the USDA as zone 6b, it should grow well there. Delaware Valley White grows in zones 5-8, so it should perform well for you, especially if you plant it in a spot sheltered from winter winds, and give it some protection in winter, such as a heavy mulch.
what time of year do you plant in texas panhandle?
A shopper on Sep 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Fall is a good time to plant Azaleas in Zone 7
