Special Attributes

A rare and hard to find new introduction, meet Tallulah Sunrise...she's sure to be a big hit with gardeners that love Native Azaleas. In spring, abundant clusters of red buds open to bright peachy orange flowers highlighted with gold tones - unlike any other we've seen! The flowers produce a delightful honeysuckle-like fragrance that fills the garden with sweet aroma. Very lustrous dark green leaves turn orange-bronze in fall. The handsome leaves are exceptionally mildew free.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing to about 6-8 feet in height and 6 feet wide, Tallulah Sunrise is ideal for use as a specimen or grouping in woodland gardens and borders and shady flowering shrub borders. As she grows taller lower branches can be removed to form an attractive small focal point specimen tree in garden beds or pots, planters and other containers. A fine addition to Azalea and Rhododendron gardens, orange or golden theme gardens, fragrance gardens, shade and woodland gardens and cottage gardens.

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




Cultural Preferences

Tallulah Sunrise Native Azalea is very easy to grow in a moist but well-drained humus rich soil and dappled shade or morning sun with afternoon shade. Native azaleas are very low-maintenance, requiring little if any pruning. Once established it is quite drought tolerant, requiring supplemental water only during prolonged periods of dry summer weather.
