THE WHITE AZALEA – Marilyn Armstrong

Azalea – FOTD – 05/23/19

When we moved into this house, there was one bedraggled Azalea trying to stay alive in front of the house. It never got any sun and it was too close to the foundation, so it didn’t grow and never bloomed.

This year, for the first time, it actually bloomed with more than a single flower. It’s not brilliant, as Azaleas go, but it has come a long way since we transplanted it. It’s a full-sized bush, even if it doesn’t produce a lot of flowers.

A blooming white azalea! Ours! Golly!

  1. Azalea…. Yes… It’s a tree? Singapore weather grow azealea trees around Azalea Parks, blooming like japanses cherry blossoms.

    1. I can imagine. Even here, if they have better soil and more sun, they do well. But we don’t have much sun and the soil is hard rocky and full of roots, so getting anything “garden-like” to grow is difficult. I don’t know how anyone really farmed here, though some still do. Maybe they had better land.

  2. I was shocked a couple of years ago when a scruffy little white Azalea (I could barely identify as such) exploded into a huge bush the size of a Volkswagen bug!! I have been meaning to post a photo. You have reminded me. I just wish now, I had some “before” pictures.
