Mandarin Lights Azalea

Description
Performing equally well in full sun or partial shade, this deciduous azalea lights up your garden with vivid, fiery orange blooms in early spring—before the leaves have emerged. The eye-catching effect of its early flowers is especially effective when planted at the edge of a woodland border, so that it's color lights up a darker area. It's generally easy to care for, but will not tolerate prolonged periods of drought, so be especially careful to water the first few seasons if establishing in a drier shady area. Once established, it'll display its seemingly magical color show without fail. Bred at the University of Minnesota for particular cold hardiness and compact habit. Grows 4-5' tall and 3-4' wide. Provide regular watering in extreme heat and apply an acidic fertilizer after blooming and you will be rewarded with spectacular spring color each year. Rhododendron 'Mandarin Lights'
