- Apr 4 10:46 AMMarcia, Your yellow deciduous azalea is some named variety or hybrids (probably fragrant) of the native Florida azalea(Rhododendron austrinum). The Tom Dodd nursery in Alabama has selected and named several pure forms of Florida azalea such as Escatawpa and Grenville Gold ( I grow both), and also several hybrids of Florida azalea with the yellow Hotspur Yellow Exbury, clled the Confederate series. It is difficult to determine exactly which named variety your plant is unless you can trace the plant down to who planted it and where they bought it. Florida Azalea is probably as close a name as I can give you. I grow a lot of azaleas that look lilke it.
