I am pretty sure this is an Azalea. But please correct me if I am wrong. Admittedly I purchased because I thought it looked cool (2 years ago) and did not pay much attention to the tag. lol
Last year it made it through the winter ok, with a little leaf burn and bloomed in beautiful pink flowers covering the entire plant from about April - May if I remember correctly.
This year it seems to be doing much better. It made it through the winter with no leaf burn and is covered in little flower buds getting ready to bloom.
I love this plant. It has beautiful green leaves in the summer and maroon leaves in the winter. The flowers are extrodinary!
