tell me about deciduous azaleas
I've always been intrigued by them, but never saw one for sale.
I'm in Maryland, zone 7A. Looking to buy/build in the next year though and could end up in zone 6B or 7A in this general region...so let's say I'm looking for anything hardy to zone 6B.
Soils are generally fairly acid already, from about 4.8pH to around a max of 6. Mostly silty clay loam or somewhere in that range.
What are some good deciduous azaleas for this area? I've seen mostly species deciduous azaleas for sale from places like Mail Order Natives, a couple hybrids from Greer Gardens...any other good sources?
Which ones have good bloom and good fall color too that would do well for me?
