Azalea - Swamp Viscosum - 2 Gal.


Rhododendron (Azalea) viscosum

Besides Clethra, there is no other plant that you will notice more when it's in bloom than this Azalea. This deciduous native blooms from mid-June well into July with a generous supply of white to pink colored flowers that exude a heavenly sweet, space filling scent. Flowers are not this plants only claim to fame as it also puts on a great show of reddish-orange fall foliage color. Perfect for grouping at the edge of wooded areas, viscosum tolerates open shaded areas and a fair amount of soil moisture with ease, making it valuable for other landscape spots while it specializes in attracting many native butterflies in the American Beauties landscape.
