How much do you know about this flower?
Azalea flowers are so beautiful. In fact, two years back I bought a plant which was planted in a black plastic bag. Then, when it had grown a little bit more, I had transplanted it into my small garden in a corner.
At that time, I did not know which colour of flowers would come out from that plant until the day when it has started blooming. I saw that the flowers were white and they were as if emerging in groups. Here, I mean that there were several flowers on only one small branch.
I love the leaves too as they are very different from other leaves. The white colour was a very deep one, it was not a mixture with other colours.
White colour represents purity and this flower has its totality in it.

How does this plant grow?
It is very easy to take care of. This plant normally grows slowly and prefer the sunny atmosphere. At my place, it has become a bush already. I have planted it facing the Northern direction and at the same time, it also gets a lot of sunlight. I do not water it. In fact, it is growing by the help of rain water and sunlight. As Mauritius is a tropical island, so we do get rain on and off.
The plant will be in good shape and later will bloom with more flowers only when you take good care of it.
