    The picture isn’t that clear but it looks like a Flame Azalea, a native plant in GA. I would not think that one that size would transplant very well. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/2487/

    One of the most beautiful sights in the Georgia woods during the spring is the native azalea. They are often noticed growing alone but sometimes in clusters. I can’t see a lot of detail in your picture but my quess is native azalea. Check out Walter’s link here http://www.walterreeves.com/gardening-q-and-a/native-azalea/
    Follow the link there to native azaleas in Georgia for additional information and identification.

    Yes, it looks like a native azalea. Hard to transplant one this size, but if you look around its base, you may see some small ones nearby that transplant fairly well.
