(1997) This plant has several labels on it and is thought to be a natural cross between prunifolium and another species, perhaps arborescens. The flowers bloom in early August and are somewhat peach-colored, unlike the red-orange of prunifolium. Our plant was dug from Kellam’s yard and is located in the Kellam Area, on the trail due west of R. ‘Calsap’.
(Before 1980) A large azalea thought to be a cross between prunifolium and arborescens. It has light yellow – peach colored flowers in mid August. Prunifolium gorws in the wild in only a few counties on the Georgia/Alabama border. Our plant is located in the area just north of the Kellam Area. It is some 20 feet off the trail, west of R. ‘SW 12500-11’ on the Kellam Spur Trail.
