Common Name Oconee Azalea Variety 'Red Inferno'
Regional Names  
Botanical Name Rhododendron flammeum (speciosum)
Description Selection 'Red Inferno' was introduced by our friend Ernest Koone. This beautiful selection was found in south Georgia. I have personally seen similar forms in the wild but none have grown as well as 'Red Inferno'. This slow but strong growing native azalea's flowers open to a dark orange and then mature to a vivid red sporting a yellow blotch in the upper lobe. Semi-glossy foliage and a vigorous grower maturing to 6'High x 6'Wide.
