Since the 1940s, the Auburn Azaleas have become a colorful traditional throughout the Auburn University campus. Bright bursts of orange, yellow, red and pink flowers make up the Donald E. Davis Arboretum’s native azalea collection, which is one of the largest in the entire nation.

Join us at the 2019 Auburn Azalea Festival and bring home this tradition on Saturday, April 20, 2019. Admission is free for the annual community celebration. The native plant sale will feature the Auburn Azalea series, food trucks, local artists and much more.

The Auburn Azaleas are the product of three generations of dedication through breeding and trials. Each plant is grown from tissue culture to ensure accuracy.  Azaleas will be available in the following varieties:

  • Aubie
  • Baker Dean
  • Corley’s Cardinal
  • Pat’s Pink
  • Samford Sorbet
  • Tiger 
  • Tom Corely

The Davis Arboretum is located at 181 Garden Drive in Auburn. It is next to the President’s house and across the street from the Garden of Memory.
