Viscosum Azaleas are not used enough in the landscape but maybe this one is the variety that will get people to take the plunge! Like all Viscosums, ‘Ribbon Candy’ is a dense, slightly taller than wide plant with thick, bluish-green foliage. In mid to late June multiple buds at branch ends open to display masses of pink, star shaped flowers with a distinctive white stripe that bisects each petal and a fragrance that will put you in landscape heaven. ‘Ribbon Candy is easy to grow and loves to be naturalized in semi-shaded woodland areas.
