Azaleas at the Farm

I love azaleas. Of all the shrubs that flower in spring, azaleas and tree peonies provide some of the most brilliant displays. I have them planted together in a garden just outside my Summer House, and when they bloom this time of year, they make one corner of my farm erupt with glorious color.

Azaleas can thrive in a wide variety of growing conditions, which makes them useful in so many different landscapes. They are popularly referred to as the “royalty of the garden” - long adored for their brightly colored flowers and evergreen foliage. Plant enthusiasts have selectively bred azaleas for years, producing thousands of cultivars.

Enjoy these photos of my cheerful azalea garden, which is blooming spectacularly right now. What azaleas are growing in your garden? Let me know in the comments section below.
