Plant Description

How about an azalea that blooms in mid summer? This one has rich orange-red flowers and has a rounded full shape to 8 feet or so. It grows naturally in sandy soil areas in the southeast so drainage is important! No fragrance or fall color, but what other azalea blooms so late? Use this one as an accent shrub in light shade.
