Plant Description

If you’re looking for a shrub that blooms in midsummer, plumleaf azalea is the one for you. Plumleaf azalea, or Rhododendron prunifolium, 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 good drainage and acidic conditions are important. This midsummer-blooming azalea has no fragrance or fall color, but what other azalea blooms so late? Use this one as an accent shrub in light shade.
