|Single, funnel-shaped, orange flowers with a purplish-pink blush, 1 3/4 inches wide.
Flowers are borne from early to mid spring in profuse, showy trusses of 1 to 3 per cluster, which literally cover the plant. Best adapted to partial sun. Prune immediately after flowering so you won't cut off any of next year's flower buds. Best if not sheared. Plant as you would any of the other azaleas: high and in well-drained, acidic soil, rich with organic matter. Beautiful planted in generous, solid-colored drifts along edge of woods.
