You will receive Rhododendron Atlanticum, Marydel Azalea, currently growing in a 1 gallon pot, well-rooted and ready for planting directly in your garden.

Rhododendron ‘Marydel’ – thought to be either a naturally occurring cross of Rhododendron atlanticum and Rhododendron periclymenoides or possibly just a pink flowering form of atlanticum. It was named for the area in which it was found growing—private property right on the state lines of Maryland and Delaware. And no matter what it’s parentage, it’s a beautiful addition to any garden.

Large “bouquets” of blooms with white edges and deep pink tube bases with purplish red areas.

Compact growth habit, reaching about 3 feet in height.

Cold hardy to –10° F. Leaves maintain their rich green color until frost, then usually turn red with cold weather, hanging on for quite awhile into winter, unlike leaves of most other native azaleas which turn unsightly in late summer to early fall and then drop.

Native deciduous azaleas (Rhododendron): Native deciduous (shrubs that lose their leaves in winter) azaleas are characterized by the following: alternate leaves, hybridize readily, trumpet shaped flowers with exerted stamens, terminal flower clusters, cold hardy, drought tolerant, some species stoloniferous, many tolerate sun and shade. It is hard to imagine a better group of plants than the native deciduous azaleas. Many have fragrant flowers and they come in a variety of flower colors including yellow. Long prized by Europeans, it has taken us Americans until recently to appreciate what we have in our own back yards. Southern Living Magazine was in the game early pushing this fine group of plants. There are 13 species so far that have been discovered. The first was discovered in 1690 and the last in 1937.

The native deciduous azaleas are difficult to propagate vegetatively and therefore are often produced from seed. That is what makes them hard to come by in the nursery trade, thus very expensive. As with all plants, the harder to propagate, the more expensive the plant.

There appears to be no common insect or disease problems with native azaleas.
