Worthy Cultivars There are some Glenn Dale azalea cultivars not common in the trade today that deserve recognition.Many people may be familiar with some of them, but most likely not all of them. Most are unaware oftheir long-term performance in the garden and their mature habit. While the Glenn Dale azaleas growbest in zones 6 to 8, they can survive with protection from strong winds in Zone 5. The following area few cultivars that warrant a closer look.
R. 'Jubilant' (Fig. 3) takes on a beautiful, arching habit as it matures. It has brilliant,single, red, 2-inch flowers, which appear in the first week of May (early midseason). Afterapproximately 20 years, 'Jubilant' grows up to 8 feet, becoming more and more attractive as itsbranches become increasingly arched. Morrison described the shrub to be robust, dense and erect.
R. 'Ambrosia' (Fig. 5) is a rather unusually colored Glenn Dale azalea. Azalea collectors oftenrefer to the color as yellowish pink. Morrison noted its color had the landscape effect of paleapricot. Very few early-blooming azaleas exhibit this color except for some of the Kurume azaleas.'Ambrosia' is unique because its large, single flowers are greater than 2 inches in diameter,and its mature height is taller than the Kurume azaleas. Its early-season flowers bloom near theend of April. Reaching up to 5 feet in 10 years, it has an upright, fairly loose, open habit atmaturity.
One of the unique characteristics of certain Glenn Dale azaleas is their two-toned coloration. R.'Red Hussar' (Fig. 6) has deep purplish pink to vivid purplish red, single flowers in late April,but the base of each flower tube is salmon red, which contrasts wonderfully with the rest of theflower color. Growing up to 6 feet in 20 years, it maintains a desirable form with densely archingbranches.
Another Glenn Dale known by collectors for having two-toned flowers is R. 'Dauntless' (Fig. 7).Its single flowers are deep purplish red with the base of each flower tube a bright scarlet,similar to the tiny-flowered R. 'Amoenum'. Blooming midseason, it matures into an attractive,broad-spreading form. The new foliage is nearly chartreuse in the spring, but it fades to amedium green the rest of the summer. In perfect contrast with its lime green foliage, itsunique color is so beautiful that it seems to glow or vibrate. It appears as a darker purple thanalmost any other azalea in bloom at that time. 781b155fdc
