'Ward's Ruby' has the darkest red flowers of any of Kurume azaleas.
It also has very dark green foliage.
When covered with the red flowers in spring, it is an eye-catching show-stopper.
It is ideal in a pot on a cool patio.
In the garden, it is best protected from hot sun and winds.
Morning sun or dappled shade is ideal.
It would rarely reach 1 mete in height.
