Fab, Fab, Fall Foliage: Azalea viscosum 'Pink Mist' (Swamp Azalea)
Swamp Azalea: Can anyone really appreciate how fabulous this shrub is when its name makes it sound like a B-movie creature from the depths?
When in reality, Azalea 'Pink Mist' is a fragrant, long-blooming azalea (late May through early August) that also has fab, fab, fall foliage!
Mature size 4' to 6' tall and wide. This deciduous shrub can tolerate full sun to part shade, normal to wet soil conditions (its tolerance for wet feet and flooding being the source of its unfortunate common name.)
