Nice late spring color. They do like rich moist soil. My Northern Lights series' azalea will start to wilt if they dry out.

All the 'Northern Lights' Azaleas are great. Rosy Lights is a vibrant pink; a must if you live in a colder zone where most azaleas don't do so well. Fall colour is excellent as well, for an added bonus.
