Varnado Pink Azalea is a large native deciduous shrub with finely toothed green foliage that turns rusty red in fall.  Dark pink buds open to clusters of sweetly fragrant soft pink honeysuckle-like flowers with elongated pink stamen bloom in early spring.  Grows best in dappled sun and rich, consistently moist, well-drained acidic soils.
