One of a series of summer-blooming Azaleas introduced by fine plantsman Mezitt, this deciduous shrub reaches just 3 feet high but spreads 5 feet wide, superbly resistant to mildew and free of most pests and diseases. Even in warm climates, it flowers well into summer; and in colder temperatures,it proves hardy to -25 degrees F. Easy and adaptable!

The flowers are an eye-catching pink, with white streaks and yellow flares. They arise in generous clusters all over this well-branched shrub, extending Azalea season by many weeks in your garden. For an even later-blooming Mezitt introduction that complements 'Weston's Lollipop' beautifully, consider Millennium. These fine varieties make it possible to continue Azalea season well into summer! Zones 4-9.
