Dawn's Chorus Azalea

Azalea x 'Dawn's Chorus' (Exbury hybrid)

SKU
0724
An extremely hardy selection with lush, semi-glossy, olive green foliage and reddish orange buds that open to fragrant, frilly, light pink, funnel-shaped blooms with a deep yellow blotch. The small mounding form is excellent for massing in shrub borders, or for use as a bold landscape accent at the edge of a reflecting pool. Deciduous.
