Rhododendron viscosum

Don’t let the name put you off, swamp azalea deserves a spot in your landscape where you can enjoy the wonderful fragrance and beautiful white flowers. This native rhody prefers average to moist soil and part sun to full sun, and its medium mature size makes it an excellent choice for garden borders.

 

The trumpet-shaped blossoms are inviting to long-tongued bees, bumble bees, and hummingbirds and bloom later in the Spring, lasting into July.  Rhododendron viscosum is deciduous, and the foliage will turn beautiful shades of maroon and gold before dropping for the winter.
