Fragrance & Azaleas
Years ago I had the great fortune to be living along the North Fork of the Smith River in N. Calif, if anyone knows where that is, ha.
In any event I do recall some lovely wild azaleas growing above the river there with a truly heavenly sweet fragrance.
Did a quick search on this site & all I came up with was a possibility of Rhododendron occidentale, Western Azalea.
The ones I recall were a pretty yellow-orangish color. Is this the same plant? Seems like a generic title, so wasn't sure if this would produce any results at the store.
It seems many aren't aware that some types of azalea have a fragrance (especially when the sun hits them!), woe even my local nursery knew nothing, nada, zip.
If anyone has suggestions on this, please post, thanks much!
