Special Attributes

The new, rare, and hard to find Tallulah Sunrise will for sure be a big hit with gardeners that like Native Azaleas. Tallulah Sunrise produces red buds that open to amazing bright peachy orange flowers unlike any other we've seen. The flowers produce a delightful honeysuckle-like fragrance that is enjoyed by butterflies, hummingbirds and humans alike. Very lustrous dark green leaves turn orange-bronze in fall. The handsome leaves are exceptionally mildew free. 

Landscape & Garden Uses

Tallulah Sunrise can be grown as a shrub or small tree to about 6-8 feet in height with a spread of 6 feet or so. It is perfect for use in woodland borders or other areas of the landscape that provide dappled shade and moist, well-drained soils rich in organic matter.  Tallulah Sunrise Rhododendron is perfect for use as a medium-sized shrub or small understory tree in woodland borders or other areas of the landscape that provide dappled shade or morning sun with afternoon shade. It also adapts well to growing in containers, planters or pots. 

Spacing:  We do not recommend as a hedge. Space plants 8' or more for space between plants

Cultural Preferences

Tallulah Sunrise Native Azalea is very easy to grow. It prefers well-drained, moist, humus rich soil and dappled shade or morning sun with afternoon shade. Native azaleas are very low-maintenance, requiring little if any pruning. That said, occasionally we might prune a stray branch that is growing way outside the natural form of the plant, but not so much that it would spoil the natural form of this beautiful shrub. Once established it is quite drought tolerant, requiring supplemental water only during prolonged periods of dry summer weather.
