It has been so hot and dry here there are very few flowers left…so these are from earlier in the year when everything was in bloom.
Azaleas are flowering shrubs that bloom in the early spring and their blooms last several weeks. Azaleas are shade tolerant and prefer living near or under a tree.
In Chinese culture, the azalea is known as “thinking of home bush” which is exactly what I think of when I see the beautiful flowering shrubs.
