I want to add three azalea bushes to my landscape.This area gets bright sun from noon time on.I have some delaware whites that do better with partial shade, but this spot is heads on full sun for a good part of the day..Any suggestions?

Do you know what zone you're in? If you don't know then we can tell you if you give us a general idea where you live. This matters as far as choosing a hardy variety of azalea.

As far as pink azaleas, I'm partial to a variety called Rosebud. The flowers are double and look like little roses opening up. A Google search will give you all of the info on it including pictures.

Not sure of the zone exactly I am just out side Boston 7 miles exactly in norfolk county.Thanks for the response , much appreciated.

RE: Bright Pink Azalea

Here's the Azalea search page from American Rhododendron Society. You can search for a bunch of different options, including flower color and hardiness, so this might give you some ideas, though not all may be readily available commercially.
