(Gable Hybrid Azalea, Springtime Hybrid Azalea)
The Gable Hybrids are a large group of evergreen and semi-evergreen azaleas developed by Joseph Gable of Stewartstown, Pennsylvania. They feature compact rounded to spreading growth with small, shiny, elliptic leaves. 'Springtime' is a reliable spring bloomer bearing purplish-red flowers with a darker blotch in their throat. Some shade is required and organic, moist soils are necessary. It works well in foundation plantings and mixed borders.
