This bush grows in our yard and I’ve thought it was a rhododendron, but a friend says no because it doesn’t have waxy leaves. It is probably 4-ft tall and is deciduous, so it doesn’t keep leaves all year like an azalea.
Another native, deciduous azalea you will enjoy when you run across it is the flame azalea – looks like the pinxter, but color varies from yellow to bright red-orange.

Thanks Jim – Pinxter it is! So the rhododendron family was right, but I wasn’t aware of this variant.

Looks like “pinxter” – native azalea.

It’s a native azalea. And a lovely one too.

Its an Azalea (same family as Rhododendron) but Azaleas bloom first then get a lighter green regular type of leaf. In the north Rhododendron is considered an evergreen as it keeps the waxy leaves all winter where Azalea is not because it drops it’s leaves.
