What a great plant for your moist, wooded area! Pink-Shell Azalea is a tall growing, open branched decidous Azalea that is a real early spring treat. Before its light to medium green leaves emerge in late April, this native beauty is already showing off its color with clusters of shell pink colored, open, somewhat flattened flowers with deeper colored throats that are shining brightly in early to mid April for all to see. While not tolerating drought, this easy to grow plant loves to take on wet feet as much as it loves to help out early spring insects and butterflies with its ample supply of early nectar. When foliated, this plant provides great nesting and cover for birds and even provides a sweet little display of light to dark red foliage color in the fall for good measure!
