     Tired of all the azaleas?  You haven't seen Pinxterbloom.  This exceptional native azalea features big and beautiful powder-pink and fragrant flowers in spring woodlands.


     Hummingbirds love Pinxterbloom as do bees and butterflies, and it is larval host to the White Lined Sphinx and Azalea Sphinx.


     Pinxterbloom Azalea prefers dappled sunlight and works great as a border or in a woodland garden where its beauty and soft fragrance can be appreciated.  It is considered rare in much of New England and endangered in New Hampshire.
