Azalea May

Azalea.  There are a couple of varieties as well as colors.  I hate all the lurid and strange colors in Azaleas.  If I cannot name the color, I do not want it.  I have a pink, a white and this very strong red.  It struggles in my yard, so it really irks me when John cuts branches for bouquets.  However, they are striking in a container.
Other varieties are much leggier and larger.  Good in Part shade and in acid soils, they can be loosely clipped to shape the plant, or even Bonsai-ed.
