In a Nutshell:
* Smooth azalea is a large, loosely-branched shrub, 8-12 ft. tall with an equal spread. Glossy, bright-green, deciduous foliage lacks hairs beneath like other native azaleas. Foliage turns deep red to purple in fall. Fragrant, funnel-shaped, white or pink-tinged flowers with protruding, red stamens cluster in subtle groups of 3 to 6 after the leaves appear.
* Sweet Azalea is tall and fast-growing for a native azalea. It is one of the hardiest native white azaleas, and one of the last azaleas to bloom in the spring. Drought sensitive, it requires moist, partially shaded sites. more...
