Performing equally well in full sun or partial shade, this deciduous azalea lights up your garden with vivid, fiery orange blooms in early spring—before the leaves have emerged. The eye-catching effect of its early flowers is especially effective when planted at the edge of a woodland border, so that it's color lights up a darker area. It's generally easy to care for, but will not tolerate prolonged periods of drought, so be especially careful to water the first few seasons if establishing in a drier shady area. Once established, it'll display its seemingly magical color show without fail. Bred at the University of Minnesota for particular cold hardiness and compact habit. Grows 4-5' tall and 3-4' wide. Provide regular watering in extreme heat and apply an acidic fertilizer after blooming and you will be rewarded with spectacular spring color each year. Rhododendron 'Mandarin Lights'
