19829Re: [AZ] Chauncey Delos Beadle
- Jun 18, 2014I am pretty sure that I grow either this plant or a sister seedling of it, acquired from the old WeDu Nursery when Dennis Niemeyer was there. My plant is blooming right now, very low, beautiful foliage but the flower color varies, 3 different but related colors each season, even a solid yellow. It was supposed to be White Find vaseyii when I planted it, so the little mounding plant is growing at the feet of three tall vaseyii azaleas. It is apparently an arborescens x cumberland hybrid, foliage of arborescens and a little fragrance. I can post photos of it in this string. I wish I grew the Richardsonii form of arborescens. It is missing in my collection.Mike Creel, SC USDA Zone 8a

We carry this azalea and think very highly of it. Blooms late(Mid June in
central NJ) when most others have finished. I would call it medium pink
rather than deep pink. It is a low, dense grower that forms a mound.
