A closeup would help. Is it double? Does it look like this?

This is rosebud azalea a fairly unique Gable evergreen Azalea. It is a favorite, due to its double pink flowers that resemble rose buds. Blooms mid-season. Slow growth to 3 ft x 3 ft.

There is a relatively new version, Bloom-A-Thon Pink Double. It is a trademarked plant that look like:

The large double pink flowers begin in April lasting 4-6 weeks, and then reappear in July, but it doesn't stop there, Bloom-A-Thonî Pink Double will continue to give you color for an additional 12-16 weeks or until a hard frost.

Sorry, the best I can do is a higher resolution photo. I did not take this photograph. I just have a case of plant lust.

Her's one of my Rosebuds.
It's been in my garden for at least 25 years.
