The swamp azalea is a woody, broadleaf evergreen or deciduous shrub that is native to the southern and eastern United states.

Its common name rightfully infers a tolerance for damp, moist environments but it requires enough drainage to avoid roots in constant standing water. The swamp azalea likes part shade and can tolerate some sun. Avoid afternoon sun which can scorch the leaves.

This shrub has very fragrant, sticky, white flowers that bloom from May to July and attract hummingbirds, bees, and other pollinators.

It can be planted in naturalized landscapes with careful attention paid to its growing requirements. It grows 2 feet to 8 feet tall and about as wide. It is a spreading shrub.  Use it as a specimen in a native garden or an understory shrub in woodland planting.
