Talk about dazzling! This spring blooming deciduous shrub presents a profusion of fiery orange flowers that emerge before the foliage for a unique effect. Just as its impossible to ignore those orange blossoms, its glossy leaves are also eye-catching as they stand out from its dark branches. The shrub would beautifully accentuate a landscape in the form of mass plantings. It is quite versatile and loves the sun but also does well in mixed shade. 'Mandarin Lights' is easy to care for and needs little more than consistent moisture, particularly in times of extreme heat. This thirsty shrub would be well in a water garden or planted near a water feature. Mulch is also appreciated as this shrub prefers cooler roots. Expect this medium sized shrub to reach about 4-5 feet tall and 3-4 feet wide. Its tidy mounding habit means that this azalea also works well in borders. (Zone: 3-7)
