Have you ever seen this azalea? Do you know the name?

RE: Azalea Identification

It reminds me of Weston's Lollipop and Ben Morrison but the red streaks seen too dark red (assuming the color is true on the photo). But wow, it is a very nice bloom, longriver.

RE: Azalea Identification

It is the true color, very deep red. I think you give me a key of possibility of the parentage. I also think it was a new seedling flower, picture-taken from a huge azalea hybridization nursery in China. They have over thousands of new seedlings under evaluation. I was told that azalea seedlings can produce the first flower in their second year. Yet a camellia seedling would take about 5 years to see the first flower.

RE: Azalea Identification

It is semi-double, meaning some stamens have been transformed completely or partially into petals, usually smaller than the outside corolla petals, and commonly contorted. One such plant is:

Azalea B. Henrys Dwarf (Crow Haven) [Late, -5F, Low] This is a sport of Osakazuki with very small leaves, peachy pink, single and semi-double flowers. Introduced by Crow Haven Farms in Oregon.
