Notes:

Tree in north Georgia close to the Carolina line. There are a handful of these on the property and it appears to grow as an understory under much larger trees, alongside mountain laurel. It is mid-March and the trees are blooming with the bright orange flowers.

    looks like a native azalea. I can’t tell for certain which species this is and wondering if this might be the Oconee azalea ( Rhododendron flammeum )? Copy & paste the included link below for GA native species. You can try for an exact ID from the experts of the Azalea Chapter American Rhododendron Society, the annual membership fee is $40:00. Best wishes!
