One of the first U of MN cultivars sustainable in our harsh MN climates.
Mollis predates Azalea-Lights series by many years.
Mollis can also grow to 6'-8' in correct environment.
Can also be started by using a rooting hormone easily enough.
A friend has done many of his by seed.
This marvelous azalea isn't well known and hard to find.
When it blooms...it comes out a soft salmon color. As the bloom ages the color starts to scream a deep bright salmon. Breath-taking.
