    What is the latest on the research to develop evergreen yellow-flowered azaleas?

    Thanks,

    Jo,

    to the best of my knowledge there is no formal research being conducted to develop an evergreen yellow-flowered azalea.
    A friend of mine in Lexington SC has been trying for years, so far unsuccessfully.

    Not an azalea, of course. There are quite a few other non-azalea evergreen rhododendrons with yellow flowers, both wild and hybrid.
