  • Description

    Sweet Azalea (Rhododendron arborescens) is a large, loosely-branched, deciduous shrub that grows naturally in sloped woodlands, along streambanks, and sometimes boggy areas. It prefers partial shade, but can be planted in full sun if the soil is kept uniformly moist and well-drained. The funnel-shaped white (occasionally pale pink) flowers bloom in clusters of 3-6, and their sweet fragrance (hence the common name) is attractive to native bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. The leaves turn a bright orange to red or purple in the fall. Sweet Azalea is commonly used in mixed or shrub borders, shade gardens, and pollinator gardens.
