A beautiful color, but there's one problem: the flower buds that it sets during the summer have been opening in the fall, thereby leaving almost nothing left for spring. (And I don't want a shrub with yellow flowers in late fall: I have enough of then with yellow leaves!) This is not just me; I've noticed others' Lemon Lights with the same problem in our neighborhood (Saint Paul MN zone 4). Any suggestions?

I have never seen any azaleas do this in my area. I'm stumped!

Fall bloom is something that can happen in both azaleas and rhododendrons; it depends a lot on the combination of the cultivar and the local climate, latitude, position in the garden (microclimate), etc.

My Orchid Lights frequently mostly blooms in the fall; it rarely has a lot left for spring. I have a rhododendron bred for Finland (Mikkeli) that does something similar.
