A new hybrid Exbury type azalea that is a cross between 2 East Coast native azaleas. I would guess that Az. calendulaceum and Az. austrinum had something to do with this outstanding orange/peach colored azalea. It is reported to be quite fragrant as well. If you like this shade of orange, this is the plant for you. This 6 foot tall deciduous azalea will stop traffic when in full bloom, and is one of the easiest to grow. Hardy to zone 6.
