Most azaleas will wilt if planted in full sunshine. There are only a few exceptions. Large deciduous azaleas, such as calendulaceum, the Flame Azalea, is a large species which prefers full sun. R. serrulatum, Swamp Azalea, also loves the sun just so long as its feet are never completely dry. If you can keep the soil moist, this one will grow for you. Both plants will grow over 6-12' tall and wide so space them accordingly.
