Polly Hill was an exceptional plantswoman from Martha’s Vineyard. Many of Polly’s azaleas are interspecific hybrids involving an incredibly compact azalea from Taiwan called Rhododendron nakaharae. ‘Pink Pancake’ is a flat grower, described by Polly herself as the flattest of her R. nakaharae hybrids. Blooms about a month later than your typical evergreen azalea. Goes well with syrup.
