Piedmont azalea is a woody, evergreen, or deciduous shrub that is native to the mountains of South Carolina and Georgia.

This mounding shrub ranges in both height and width from 6 to 8 feet.

Plant in humus-rich, acidic, moist but well-drained soils in partial shade to dappled shade. As with other azaleas, this species does not tolerate dense clay, so if you have clay soil, amend with organic material. The roots may rot if soil does not drain well. Plant the root ball high in the soil to help with drainage issues. Avoid overwatering and over-fertilizing. Pruning, if desired, may be done after flowering.

The tubular, showy flowers appear in large clusters in the spring in a variety of colors from yellow to pink to red and attract both hummingbirds and bees. For an azalea, It is tolerant of heat and humidity.

Use in a woodland garden, for naturalizing, foundation plantings, or as a specimen, hedge, or shady shrub border.
