Select Yellow #2 deciduous azalea cultivar
- I visited a nursery yesterday at lunch in Columbia,
SC, that is known for keeping the same plants a long
time and never reducing their price. Most plants die,
but some survive. I found an area of survivors
yesterday with several 5 gallon ($14 to $19) or so
sized native azalea cultivars, well budded and healthy
(probably somewhat pot-bound though). Among them were
names like austrinum, Red Pepper, Weston Innocence and
Clear Creek. Some had lost their labels. Several
nice ones were labeled simply "Select Yellow #2," and
the the foliage (on one that still had foliage) did
not look like typical austrinum, which I expect a
yellow to be usually. I searched for "Select Yellow"
azalea and I found a photo of a plant by this name on
a site where it was photographed at Riverbanks Zoo in
Columbia, SC. It appeared to be an austrinum.
Has anyone ever discovered a deciduous azalea cultivar
named Select Yellow #2?
