The Florida Flame Azalea is native to the panhandle area of Florida, as well as southern Georgia. This Rhododendron is a deciduous, sparsely branching shrub that attains heights from 6 to 8 feet and a spread of about 2 feet. It prefers a location of part sun to shade and is drought tolerant once established. In early spring the Flame Azalea bears clusters of trumpet-shaped, yellow-gold blooms that are blushed reddish to peach at the base. The flowers have a slight honeysuckle fragrance, which attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.
