First Editions® Electric Lights™ Double Pink Azalea

Rhododendron ‘UMNAZ 493’ PP26,600

From the deciduous azalea breeding program at the University of Minnesota, this is the first double-flowered form and it is a beauty! In spring, double pink, fragrant flowers smother the plant in color. Soft green foliage turns a good burgundy in the fall. Plants form an upright mound in the landscape and tolerate full sun to part shade. Flower buds are hardy to -30*F. Introduced by Bailey Nurseries, Inc.
