(NOTE: I am tickled pink to discover these azaleas. They were bred about 1 hour north of me in Lavonia Georgia! I have not grown these yet but am so excited to present the info here. I read that these can be found locally in the big box stores. I will def. be looking for them. I went to the nursery website but couldn't get any info on the azaleas).

Maid in the Shade azaleas. Most deciduous azaleas do well in full sun and frequently are poor bloomers in the shade. "Maid in the Shade" deciduous azaleas is a collection of deciduous azaleas compiled by Transplant Nursery (Lavonia, Ga) selected to do well in shadier locations. They include:

'Summer Lyric' - Flowers are a mix of pink with yellow throats.
'Lisa's Gold' - Golden-yellow flowers.
'Camilla's Blush' - Blushing pink blooms that hummingbirds find irresistible.
'Kelsey's Flame' - Bright yellow and orange flowers.
'Lavender Girl' - Pale lavender flowers.
'Rosy Cheeks' - Dark rose flowers with golden throats. Its fragrance can rival that of a rose.
'Nacoochee Princess' - Regal white flowers that are tinged with pink.


'My Mary' - Pale yellow flowers, named as a tribute from George Beasley to his wife Mary.
