Nice azalea, flower buds are very hardy. I've grown this without any protection and never had any damage or loss of flowers.

Actually, this plant is supposed to be 2-3 feet tall, not 6-8 feet.

One of the first Northern Lights Azaleas, it is still the hardiest. The flowers are small and the plant short and bushy but they are very floriferous.
