Pink Blooming Shrubs
I caught a glimpse of pink while driving the other day, and was quite excited to get a better look at our native azalea! Rhododendron periclymenoides (Pinxster Azalea) is blooming in the woodlands near you. This is another great plant to add to your list of shrubs to purchase at one of the upcoming plant sales.
This beautiful native azalea makes me wonder why they ever created the cultivars. The unique flower, and leggy quality makes it such a showcase plant. It is not evergreen, but with a bloom like this, does it really need to be?
