Description / Rhododendron Coastal Azalea

A native to coastal plain areas from New Jersey and Pennsylvania south to Georgia, this dwarf azalea typically grows to just 2 to 3 feet tall and wide but, in optimal conditions, occasionally reaches 6 feet tall. Blushing white flowers with long graceful stamens bloom in clusters, up to 13 inches long, of 3 to 13 flowers from April to May. The flowers have a strong musky scent.

This loosely branched, deciduous shrub spreads by underground stolons. In the wild, they naturalize and will form dense colonies, particularly in sandy soil; but in the typically heavier soils found in landscapes, they are much less aggressive. In moist, cool locations, it tolerates full sun but prefers dappled sun to open part shade.

Uses: Accent, Borders, Mixed Beds, Mass Plantings, Hedges, Containers
