‘Solar Glow’ Azalea is a twiggy deciduous native shrub with a large upright habit and small green leaves.  An abundance of vibrant orange buds on the branch tips open to fragrant orange flowers in spring attracting butterflies.  A very versatile plant that prefers morning or partial sun with acidic rich, well-drained soils.  Solar Glow is more sun tolerant than most azaleas.

MAINTENANCE NEEDS:  A low maintenance plant.  Moderate water needs, properly drained soils is a must to avoid root rot.  Mulch helps to keep roots from drying out. Keep away from drip lines of the walnut family. Acidify soils as needed (PH range of 5 to 6.5) Can use sulfur or iron sulfate to lower ph, and lime or limestone to raise PH. Buds grow on old growth in winter, so if need to prune do so after the spring bloom.  Southern climates with excessive humidity are more prone to powdery mildew, twig blights, and rust.
