piedmont azalea

Scientific name: Rhododendron canescens.

We got this azalea in fall of 2019, and had no idea it would have such showy flowers. It’s a US native that seems to be enjoying it’s full-sun location, though my understanding is that they are happier in part-shade and occur in the wild at the edge of forests in swampy locations. That area of yard is far from swampy, but it seems to be doing okay in its moderate-moisture/dryish location.
