a customer of mine brought a cutting to me and wanted to know what it was. at first glance i thought it was coral bells azalea, but the flowers are very small, only about an inch across and he claims the plant blooms almost all year long and is so covered with the flowers that the leaves are not evident. the leaves on the cutting are tiny, dark green and somewhat shiny. i have a photo of the cutting. the flowers are more pinkish than the photo shows.
i showed it to my associates and one thought it might be wild azalea but could not account for the bloom period and another thought it was coral bells. any help will be appreciated as he promised to root some for us.
