R. prinophyllum or R. canescens

cearbhaillMay 8, 2014

Husband blew all the tags off during an overzealous leaf blowing debacle :(

I know I have both these species of native azaleas but am uncertain which is which. Blooming deep pink in early May with an almost cinnamon fragrance.

Which is this?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Prinophyllum. Canescens blooms earlier, the blossoms are usually paler in color. Spicy fragrance of prinophyllum is usually likened to cloves.
