Bi-Color Yellow-Cream Azalea Welcomes Spring
Why Lemon Lights Azalea Shrubs?
Delivering a profusion of yellow-cream blooms to welcome spring, the Lemon Lights Azalea lives up to its name, giving you huge flowers that cover your garden in a crisp, eye-catching blanket of vibrancy.
Deep evergreen foliage lends the perfect backdrop for plant beds, unique borders, or foundation plantings. But no matter where you plant them, the Lemon Lights brings stunning floral volume plus cold-hardy strength since it thrives all the way down to growing zone 4, tolerating temperatures as low as -20 degrees.
Even better is the fact that it's ideal for tight garden spaces. With a manageable mature height and width, the Lemon Lights provides big color without needing a ton of space.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: These Azaleas can thrive in full to partial sun (4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day) but will need protection from the hot sun in warmer climates. Well-drained soil is also important for your shrub to thrive.
When you’re ready to plant, dig a hole that’s three times as wide and just as deep as the shrub’s root ball. Remove the plant from the container and loosen the roots with your fingers so that they spread out once planted and place your shrub. Backfill the soil and water lightly as you do this to remove air pockets. Finally, water again once you’re done planting and mulch the area to help conserve moisture.
FGT Tip: Azaleas love acidic soil. If you have soil that isn’t acidic, like clay, simply buy additives (organic matter, fresh coffee grounds, etc.) to amend it. You can also plant your Azalea in a container, where you can control the soil type!
2. Watering: We recommend watering twice or three times weekly in the first growing season. During the hotter times of the year, they will need watering every other day, depending on the weather. Once plants are established, they will need less frequent watering.
If you’re not sure when to water, however, simply check the soil. Stick your finger into the surrounding soil, about 3 or 4 inches down – if the soil here is dry, water your Azalea.
3. Fertilizing: Fertilize your shrub with a slow-release fertilizer that’s made for Azaleas, at some point in the early spring. Follow label instructions as the application will vary by manufacturer.
4. Pruning: These shrubs need very little pruning. If you need to prune the plant for shaping, prune after the plant has finished its spring flowering. Once plants are well-established, light annual pruning can be done to stimulate growth and blooming.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Shrub arived in good healty condition. Planted and watered the shrub seems to be doing well at this time. If it survives the winter i'm sure it will bloom come next spring. Time will tell.
(Shipping) Fly in the Ointment
First of all, the positives... I searched everywhere locally for this particular variety of azalea, with no luck. So when I found it at FastGrowingTrees.com, I was elated, especially with the 1-2 day shipping promise. The website was easy to navigate and had all the information I needed to make my purchase. And then I waited...and waited....and waited... EIGHT DAYS LATER, it arrived via UPS at my door. I was not at all sure it would make it. Thankfully, it was well-packed, the pot wrapped in plastic to prevent drying out. But the leaves showed that the plant was clearly distressed. I planted it and have been babying it since. Now, another week later, it is finally looking healthy. I'm glad because even though I knew FGT would replace it, I really wanted it to survive. I realize this is very likely a UPS problem, not a FGT problem. And I didn't call them, even though I could have. So I'm only dinging them one star as a way of alerting them to the issue with the shipping vendor. In short - mostly great experience and can't wait to see blooms next spring!
Love My Lemon Azalea
Plant arrived in the best packaging. No broken branches. Plant is remarkably healthy. Can't wait for it to bloom next year.
Good size plants and shipped with care and fast as always! I have not seen yellow azaleas at my local stores! I use this company often and I love their products. Thanks!
