Plant Type: Deciduous Shrubs

Noteworthy for its showy fragrant flowers, its late season of bloom, its colorful fall foliage, and its exceptional hardiness, this medium-sized, rounded, deciduous shrub is one of many azalea cultivars introduced by Weston Nurseries of Hopkinton, Massachusetts. A hybrid of the eastern North American native Rhododendron viscosum, it bears showy heads of single white flowers from late spring to early summer. The wide-flaring funnel-shaped blooms are intensely fragrant. The oval, mid-green, mildew-resistant leaves are bronze-tinged in summer and turn burgundy-red in fall.
