Alabama azalea is a rounded, woody, deciduous shrub and is native to Alabama and Georgia.  This compact rhododentron grows to a height  and width of 4 to 6 feet.  Alabama azalea grows in drier woodlands than most of our other native azaleas. Place it in a site with partial shade and well-drained acidic soil with a high content of loam and sand as well as organic matter. Mulch it each year to keep the soil moist and cool. Protect it from afternoon sun, as it can scorch the leaves and the roots may rot if the soil does not drain well. It spreads by underground runners.

It has white flowers with a prominent lemon-yellow blotch on the upper petal, and a distinct, lemon fragrance. These flowers support pollinators like bees. Though this plant is can be damaged by deer, it tolerates damage by rabbits.
