Flame Azalea, (rhododendron calendulaceum) is one of the nine rhododendron genus shrubs growing in the Great Smoky Mountains. It is often confused with the Cumberland Azalea which is on the red side of orange, while the flame azalea is on the yellow side. These shrubs may start blooming in the lower elevations mid April and May. The higher elevations and balds are in June and July. Some of the best displays in the park are at Gregory and Andrews Balds or along the Balsam Mountain Road….. William Bartram, an early botanist, discovered flame azaleas in 1791, he described the plant as “certainly the most gay and brilliant flowering shrub yet known.”

I can personally recomend the Balsam Mountain and Heintooga Ridge Road in the Great Smoky Mountains as a great place to view these beautiful Azalea often you’ll see them side by side with Mountain Laurel in a brilliant display

    Gary, how beautiful, is all I can say! The 17 yr. Cicadas killed ours this year, just as it was about to bloom! So, just have last years images left. Honestly, you can’t even imagine the beauty of these, as it is hard to capture even with a camera! The one we have might be slightly different. I will have to try and post one, and let you tell me if there is a bit of difference. Well, this is just stunningly beautiful! :)
