Twin Beauties

The South is known for its beautiful Azaleas, and you’ll have to go a long way to find one more beautiful than the twin beauties I’ve shown here.  I bought five small Azalea bushes for $2.99 at the end of season two years ago; repotted twice – and what started out at a mere 8″ or so tall have now grown to more than 2 feet and have finally bloomed.  I couldn’t have been more surprised or more pleased.  The name I found for this specie was Campanilla — if you can verify that would be great.

Lots of buds, begging to greet the world

I thought it would be fun for you to see these as they begin their climb to all out beauty.

I never realized there were so many species of Azaleas until I began browsing through a wholesale/retail garden outlet near my home.

Like little pink flags, waiting to unfurl their beauty
