Rhododendron arborescens

Sweet azalea is a native, deciduous azalea that is extremely prevalent in the Appalachian range of southern Pennsylvania, down to the carolinas and west toward the midwest.  It features large, pale pink flowers that are sweet and fragrant. Flowers appear shortly after the leaves and bloom from May to June.  It's foliage deepens in the fall for interesting fall color. Sweet azalea is one of the most sought-after PA native shrubs and is typically hard to find at nurseries. Sweet nectar is popular with pollinators.

It should be planted in a well-draining area that receives good amounts of water, but where water does not pool to avoid root rot.
