Azalea ( Rhododendron ) 'Lemon Lights' - Northern Lights Series
Flowers are a super bright dazzling lemon yellow color, and usually occur very early in the season - many times before or at the same time the leaf buds are just emerging from dormancy. The bright yellow color is a color seldom seen in the warmer weather azaleas seen typically in the southern hybrids, which is a nice change of pace. Exact timing will vary a little, depending on just what climate you are located in. The warmer the climate, the earlier you should expect to see the fireworks begin, whereas the more northern climates may have to wait until mid may or so. Deciduous azaleas are probably the most striking flowering shrubs. Their colors are vivid and bright, and often have the shades that not many other azaleas and rhododendrons can offer.
