'Orange Carpet' 

Deciduous Native Azalea

Earl Sommerville Native Azalea

Zones 5b-9

‘Orange Carpet’ is one of those bucket list plants that everyone needs in their garden. Yes, we have a creeping orange blooming native azalea selection. It sounds crazy, because it is. ‘Orange Carpet’ was collected by Earl Sommerville in 1960 at Lake Allatoona. The only reason this plant isn’t out there more is that it is a slow grower. In 10 years, ‘Orange Carpet’ may reach 2 ft in height by 4 ft in width. This means 1 gallons will be smaller than other azaleas we offer. It takes time. Once this plant gets established and starts doing its thing, this is a show stopper in the garden. Make sure to give ‘Orange Carpet’ good drainage and lots of organic matter when planting. ‘Orange Carpet’ is believed to be a hybrid between Rhododendron calendulaceum and Rhododendron flammeum.

Limited Quantities Available !! As we have over a thousand cultivars of Japanese maples, we often do not have many of each cultivar. We recommend that you buy the Japanese maples you want immediately as we often sell out of certain selections.
