Plumleaf azalea is a large, woody, broadleaf evergreen or deciduous shrub that is native to Alabama and Georgia and does well in the South. Growing 8 to 12 feet tall and 6 to 8 feet wide, it has an erect, spreading, and open habit.

This azalea prefers a cool, shady site, but can be grown in partial shade where it will be protected from afternoon sun. It prefers moist, well-drained, acidic soils and does not tolerate dense clay. If you have clay soil, amend with organic material, because 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.

If you have the space, grow this late summer bloomer as a specimen in a pollinator garden where it will attract bees, hummingbirds, and other pollinators. Otherwise, it does well in a naturalized or woodland area.
