Common Name Florida Flame Azalea Variety 'Escatawpa'
Regional Names  
Botanical Name Rhododendron austrinum
Description This native beauty from southern Alabama was introduced by Tom Dodd, Sr. and is and is a strong, easy to grow, vigorous form maturing to 12' or more. Flowers in April produce very nicely fragrant, bright golden flowers with light red tubes. The species R. austrinum is absolutely the easiest to grow of all the native Rhododendrons and typically is the first to flower in spring. 'Escatawpa' and species R. canescens are the two we recommend to gardeners who are interested in growing native Rhododendrons for the first time.
Notes
