'Roehr's Peggy Ann' is a kaempferi azalea and is evergreen. It produces 2 kinds of leaves, spring leaves and summer leaves. It is the summer leaves that will survive the winter, with the spring leaves being deciduous. The spring leaves are narrowly lance-shaped 1-1.5 inch long with ciliated margins and scattered bristles on the upper and lower surfaces. The smaller summer leaves 1/4 to 3/4 inch long are similarly hairy and clustered around the terminal bud. Rated at USDA Zone 5b-8, R. kaempferi is an outstanding species in its own right deserving a place in any woodland garden or even sunny gardens in New England. Free blooming and heat tolerant, remember when planting that the flowers can fade, especially the lovely salmon flower color. So site it out of the hot afternoon sun.
