Western azalea


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
Western Azalea native to southern OR and northern CA. I've seen this ringing Darlingtonia bogs in the Siskiyous in full bloom in shimmering 100 degree heat and it is a sight to behold. Quite fragrant. These are grown from a plant from Leo Hitchcock's garden, guru of PNW natives.
