Does anyone have a clue as to the variety of this azalea? I have a customer that planted these 16 years and has had several that has died, and wants to replace them. We have no clue as to the variety.
Thanks!!!

The plant itself was about 36"-42" tall and about 36" in diameter.

Well, if you were in the north I'd guess one of the Northern Lights series (huge flowers & hardy) - but in Louisiana, I'm not so sure.

To me it apears to be a Celestine.

Mainly found down south.

Maybe Rhododendron 'Scintilation'.

Maybe Rhododendron 'Scintilation'.

And the winner is AGLA that is exactly what it is Big Tom. I have used the Scintilation in a lot of landscapes in the past.

I have only seen Northern Lights with a white bloosom. Do they come in other colors?

Yes, pretty much the gamut of pastels - yellow, pink, white, orange.
