I'm Andrew Van Cleve, chief grower at Azalea House Flowering Shrub Farm, and I grow flowering shrubs without fungicide to reveal truly disease resistant plants. I am providing time honored, proven shrubs that are disease resistant locally (I operate my operation as a niche market, in other words I propagate plants that most places wont have, we dont grow plants that our competitors have but plants that are hard to find locally, easy to propagate and generally tolerant of local conditions).
