Azaleas: So many colors, so many varieties

The azaleas have been blooming for weeks now.  They are absolutely beautiful this year, and I just couldn’t quit taking photos.  All of the photos are of azaleas blooming in our woodland garden…

    O wow, what lovely colors. I grew Azalea once but after it flowered, it died on me. Are they sun-loving plants?

    1. Thank you, Arlene! Most of our azalea plants are in shaded areas, so they get partial sun.
