A favorite of the staff at the David G. Leach Research Station. This cultivar, and another offered this year (‘Mangetsu’), is often attributed to a Japanese species called the Kyushu azalea, Rhododendron kiusianum. But azaleas are promiscuous, and this may be a hybrid. The flowers of ‘Komo Kulshan’ have pink tips and white centers, creating a unique bicolor effect. A nice example of this azalea can also be found on Beech Knoll at Holden Arboretum. Tough and compact. Good in a rock garden.
