Default Azaleas, Florida's answer to the Rhododendron

Not as cool as Rhododendron's but very pretty.

Rhododendrons require a lot of shades to grow. I think Azaleas will do much better in sunny Florida. Nice pictures!

azaleas are actually a subspecies of rhododendron... they also do well up here in wet, cloudy Washington!
