The Robin Hill azaleas adapt well to the deep South. They bloom heavily in the fall and also flower in the spring, commonly leading to the name of "re-blooming" or "multi-seasonal" flowering azaleas. 'Sir Robert' is a popular Robin Hill variety. Its flowers range from white to pink.

Plants are compact spreaders that grow to 2 to 3 feet. They are a good substitute for the finicky Gumpo pinks.
