This plant is called an Orchid Lights azalea because the pink flowers are an orchid pink. This plant was one of a group that were developed to survive very cold winters and were called the 'Northern Lights' azaleas, so this one is the Orchid Lights.
Orchid Lights azalea is a small multi-stemmed shrub that grows slowly, reaching a final height of about 3 feet and a width of about 4 feet. Like most azaleas, it prefers a partly shaded site with protection from afternoon sun, such as on a northerly or eastern frontage. It requires a rich acidic well-drained, but consistently moist soil and will demonstrate chlorosis (leaf yellowing) in alkaline soils. Prune immediately after flowering and mulch the root zone in the fall for winter protection.
