Klondyke Azalea

Klondyke is the perfect accent in borders. If the large clusters of vivid flowers cropping up all over the plant don’t catch everyone’s attention, the delightful fragrance will. Bees, butterflies and hummingbirds are in heaven when the azaleas are in bloom. This is a great choice for a mixed container garden on a shady patio, because it thrives in partial shade, and jazzes up the display with bright color. You can also plant it en masse along a shady border for a grand show. Klondyke Azalea has won several awards, including the Rhododendron of the Year Award for the Mid-Atlantic and Great Lakes regions. Azalea x ‘Klondyke’
