Planting More Than 100 Azaleas

Developing any garden takes time, planning, and lots of patience.

Three years ago, I decided to create an azalea border along one side of the carriage road between my Summer House and my stable. I wanted to plant lots of colorful azaleas - a variety of unique specimens in shades of pink, orange, crimson, and white. I already have many azaleas growing and flourishing in this area, but I wanted to expand the collection. First, we planted about 170 azaleas on one side of the carriage road, and then another 200 on the other side. Every year, my gardeners and I watch how the plants grow and add more where needed. This week, we're planting another 104!
