A totally new way to use azaleas. As Ground cover! Perfecto Mundo Pink Carpet® azalea naturally has a very low, wide habit. Its foliage grows nice and tight, acting as a weed barrier and giving the front of the border a solid block of color. Like the other members of the Perfecto Mundo series, it blooms prolifically in spring, rests and then puts out another amazing show from mid-summer into fall. Its pale pink flowers are multi-hued and abundant, creating a dynamic color show that is sure to catch anyone’s eye. In winter, its evergreen foliage is shiny and fine-textured, providing interest near walkways and seating areas. Your garden might just need some new pink carpet to add some interest!

Why grow Perfecto Mundo Pink Carpet™ azalea?

  • Extremely high bloom count
  • Time-saving, low habit helps cut down on weeds
  • Long blooming


Light: Has the healthiest foliage and flowers most prolifically in sites with part sun – all day dappled light or morning sun with afternoon shade.

Soil: Prefers acidic soils that stay evenly moist, but with good drainage.

Water: Likes to be kept on the moist side, but not soggy.

Fertilizing:  Apply compost to the soil surface every season, all azaleas benefit from high organic matter.

Pruning: Pruning isn’t necessary, but if you’d like to increase the abundance of rebloom you can trim it just after its big spring bloom. This encourages new growth, which will bloom more prolifically.

Other: Has shown improved lacebug resistance.
