Formerly known as, and synonymous with, R. nudiflorum, this native shrub is endemic to moist woods, swamp margins, and open areas from Massachusetts to South Carolina and Tennessee.

It is a dense, bushy, suckering deciduous shrub that typically grows 2 to 6 feet tall but will reach 10 feet in ideal conditions. It blooms in April, slightly before the foliage, in clusters of funnel-shaped, lightly fragrant, soft pink to white to lavender flowers with long stamens, attracting butterflies and hummingbirds.

The plant prefers acidic, humusy, organically rich, moisture-retentive, but well-drained soil and dappled sunlight, but it tolerates dryish, sandy, or rocky soils and full sun in cool summer climates.
