Comments: This is one of the most widely planted azaleas in the South. Its rich rose-pink (some people say watermelon-red), three inch flowers, dark green foliage, and relative ease of growing make it a favorite azalea for southern gardens. It is a mid season bloomer. Its habit of growth is somewhat upright and pruning may be necessary periodically to keep the size manageable.
