Coast Azalea is a 4&½ foot tall, erect, suckering shrub with bluish-green foliage and fragrant, pinkish-white, long-stamened, mid-spring flowers that usually open before plants leaf out. This species occurs naturally in the coastal plain from Delaware to South Carolina in flat pine woods and savannahs usually where it is moist but also in xeric sand hills. This suggests its use in high open shade in moist to dry areas with good drainage.
