Shrub

Rhododendron atlanticum

Coastal Azalea

  • White to pink flowers
  • Strong fragrance
  • Can grow up to 6’ tall but usually around 3’
  • Synonymous with Azalea atlanticum

This selection's pinkish-white flowers are delightfully fragrant, filling the garden with its scent and attracting native bees and butterflies. Foliage is an attractive blue-green on a semi-dwarf shrub that will spread to form colonies. Great for naturalizing in the moist shade of taller trees.
