of Autumn Azaleas & Rhododendrons
November portraits of
'Poukhanense Compacta' Korean Azalea
Rhododendron yedoense var. poukhanense or
'Poukhanense Compacta' is a semi-deciduous azalea.
In autumn 2003 the leaves turned yellow at the hearts
remaining variegated for the month of November.
The pink petals laying on the ground beneath this shrub
have fallen from the autumn-blooming Camellia sasanqua 'Rosea'
espaliered to the wall behind 'Poukhanense Compacta.'
This variegated appearance is not habitual, as the leaves
have been of uneven character autumn by autumn. In winter,
however, the leaves invariably turn reddish-bronze, though it
holds such a small percentage of its leaves through winter
that any color has only a small impact. The autumn appeal
is fair to good, but the winter color is poor to fair. It's beauty
in winter is dependent on the charm of the twiggy structure
rather than in the color the few
winter-reddened leaves that never fall.
