Nothing heralds the arrival of spring in New Orleans quite like the explosion of color that azaleas provide. It is a sign of warmer days ahead and fun times in the crescent city. Even though the shrubs are evergreen throughout the year, they certainly put on a display as the days begin to get longer.
If you would like to add them to your garden, now is the time to plant azaleas – buy shrubs while they are in bloom so you know what color you are getting before planting them in your landscape. Or just buy random shrubs and wait till next spring to see what color bursts open when they bloom!
Personally I am fond of white azaleas – this one is in my garden
Have a lovely spring
