I have a friend who has this growing in his backyard. The woman he bought the house from about 10 years ago told him that it was a 'wild azalea' and she apparently bought it and paid quite a bit of money for it.
It is in full bloom right now, so I wanted to post a photo and see if anyone can help identify what type it is and tell me where I could buy one, if possible.
If I can't find a source, I would love to try to grow one from a cutting or seed or however that could possibly be done. I understand that some azaleas are very difficult to propogate, but I would appreciate any information on this particular one.
It smells wonderful! The blooms last a very short time; probably about a week. It is a beautiful, graceful delicate looking tree.
Thanks for any help.
