Large, single blooms herald spring's arrival with a golden-yellow brilliance that's dazzling against the backdrop of its bronze-tinted, green foliage. The blossoms carry a soft scent as elegant and endearing as their lambent color. The dramatic yellow blossoms feature a darker patch of speckles on one petal. Forming in clusters atop strong stems, local butterflies and early emerging pollinators will be grateful for the nectar resource.

As spring progresses into summer, the leaves transition to their vibrant, full-green nature until the glossy, narrow leaves turn red for autumn. Klondyke Azalea is a deciduous shrub that will grow 6-8 feet tall with a 6-foot spread. It has an upright, spreading habit with a moderate growth rate.
