Plant Description

Cumberland Azalea is a beautiful deciduous azalea that occurs on wooded slopes in the Cumberland Plateau of Kentucky and Tennessee and in the mountains of Georgia, North Carolina, and Alabama. It is a low growing and later blooming azalea (early to mid-summer) with beautiful trusses of orange to red flowers that are not fragrant. In cultivation, it will be from 1 to 6 feet tall and wide, and prefers full sun in the north to partial shade in the south with well drained, but good, acidic soil. These are grown from seed so their colors and heights will vary. Colors will range from light pink to salmon to orange to red and all shades in between. A beautiful azalea for the home garden.
