Gardeners' Notes:

My 'Popcorn' azalea has been a consistent performer since I planted it 8 years ago. It is now a full, round shape at 4 feet tall. The branches are slender, but sturdy. The blooms are white with buttery yellow throats.


This azelea (my favorite of several in my yard) is not only visually attractive, but its blossoms also produce an INCREDIBLY pleasant sweet scent. Not quite gardenia, but just as enjoyable. The wafting scent by my front entry often gets comments like "what is that nice smell" [sic] ;)

I pay little attention to caring for this plant, just an application of acid fertiziler every other year or so.


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

Concord, Massachusetts
Wrentham, Massachusetts
Millbrook, New York
