Rhododendron canescens

Piedmont Azalea

This native deciduous azalea has showy pink, fragrant flowers that blossom in early spring. Flower color varies widely from pale to dark pink. It is sometimes stoloniferous (spreads by underground stems). Grows in acidic soil and from nearly full shade to full sun. It does best in slightly damp soil. Flowers best in sunny location but foliage may look better in some shade, particularly in late summer.  Overall an attractive and hardy plant that may hybridize readily with other species which may flower nearby at the same time.  Probably the most widespread native azalea species in the Southeast.
