Prized for its strongly-scented flowers and beautiful fall foliage Swamp Azalea is a very appealing native to the swamps of the eastern United States, from Maine to Alabama, and westward to Texas. This bushy, medium-sized, deciduous shrub bears funnel-shaped, white flowers, often tinged pink, with long slender tubes. Held in small clusters of 3-12 flowers, they bloom profusely after the leaves emerge, in early summer and exude a strong clove-like perfume. The foliage of lustrous, elliptic, dark green leaves turns brilliant shades of yellow, orange and purple in fall, for a great colorful show. Exceptionally cold-hardy, this late season Azalea can withstand temperatures as low as to -20°F (-29°C). A wonderful landscape plant that deserves a place near a patio, deck or living area, where its delightful fragrance can be enjoyed.
