Several species of azaleas are native to Louisiana and the Southeast. Their flower color ranges from white to pink, yellow, orange, scarlet or crimson, with several shades in between. Plant size is also variable, ranging from 3 feet to more than 20 feet. White flowering kinds include Alabama azalea (R. alabamense), Piedmont azalea (R. canescens), Sweet or Smooth azalea (R. aborescens), Coastal or Dwarf azalea (R. atlanticum), and Swamp azalea (R. viscosum). Other colors to consider include Florida azalea (R. austrinum) which is yellowish-orange, Oconee azalea (R. flammeum) a salmon-orange, Plumleaf azalea (R. prunifolium) which has apricot colored flowers.

Hope these suggestions help.
