Plant Details: Piedmont Azalea
5 - 9
Rhododendron canescens is a fast grower. Fragrant pink flowers bloom early spring March to April, just as R.austrinum is starting to fade but before R. flammeum starts to bloom. Shallow spreading roots do well in shady well-drained sites with rich soils but will tolerate some degree of red clay. Like R. austrinum it is also of the easiest of the native azaleas to grow in an average garden setting. Mature size is 15'High x 10'Wide.
As with all wild species, flower color may vary with seed grown plants. Only selected cultivars will provide consistant color forms.
