Common Name Florida Flame Azalea Variety 'Millie Mac'
Regional Names Florida Azalea
Botanical Name Rhododendron austrinum
Description This natural occurring form of R. austrinum was found by Tom Dodd Senior and Junior during a plant exploration trip in the lower reaches of Alabama some years ago. They brought this natural selection back for cultivation and with great success introduced it into the trade as 'Millie Mac'. This unusual form has a picotee snow white margin around the rich gold flowers. A very unique native treasure to have in the landscape. It is the same as the normal species in growth characteristics maturing to 10-15'High x 10'Wide. This species is tolerant to a wide range of soil types but performs best in rich high organic soils with consistent moisture especially during the summer. A very easy and fast growing species. For other easy to grow native species, you may want to consider R. canescens, R. serrulatum, R. viscosum, or R. atlanticum.
