Northern Lights Azalea is blooming!!!

Last year I planted a Golden Lights Azalea, and I used bagged leaves as well as cardboard around it for the winter. This week it has started blooming, and I think that the result was worth the effort. I really like the smell of the blooms, but you do have to get quite close to the flowers to appreciate it. Here are some pictures of my now prized azalea!

Hopefully my endless summer hydrangea will bloom as well this summer, and my winter protection will be a success!

Janet, that's wonderful! Such beautiful blooms too. My azalea should be blooming in a week or so, but it won't have nearly the amount of blooms as yours because I don't winter protect it at all.

What gorgeous blooms Janet!! Definitely worth the effort:)

re: wow!

Very nice and was well worth the effort. To me the flowers look like fireworks.

Thanks for sharing.
