Nature or Nurture......

What can I say?

I am nuts about azaleas....

There are dozens around my home.

I am so fortunate that the previous owners loved them too.

This one is huge,

it is about 4 foot tall, and 6-8 feet across...

it must absolutely love where it is planted too,

shaded for most of the day,

protected from the noon day sun....

Hot summer sun only hits it for a couple of hours a day.

Right now, it is in full bloom,

and has 2 different blossoms.......

Cool, huh?
Yep, both of these blossoms are from the same plant,
I think it has something to do with Hybridizing....


  1. Beautiful photos. Thank you for sharing, it is snowing in Taos today :-).

  2. Well, of course you love azaleas. Look at those beauties:>)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment...I am grateful....smiles.
