Azalea Chalet® Orchid pink flowers with raspberry colored throats

Chalet® Azaleas
Selected from a batch of seedling crosses made and shared by famed nurseryman Tom Dodd in Semmes, AL during the late 1990’s, these xpoukhanense hybrids were trialed and finally selected by Chalet® Nursery in Illinois for their extreme hardiness, reliable flower power and wider range of flower colors.

Soft, baby-blush-pink flowers with contrasting raspberry-red spots in the throat create a stunning contrast, while still adding a calming effect to any setting.
