Cannon`s Double Azalea
Cannon`s Double Azalea
Azalea x 'Cannon`s Double' (Exbury hybrid)
It would hard to describe the color of this Azalea because it was several all at once. It was very easy on the eyes. It gets to about 6 feet tall and has red tinted foliage. I am going to have to try one of these.
Here is a partial list of the plants we planted at the small farm the last couple of days. Sorry for the mix of common and botanical names. It is just how it came out. The plants marked with star are the ones I haven’t grown before. Since it is the most northern of our gardens I have to watch what we plant. It gets a lot colder. Lucky about 3 miles is a large wholesale nursery that I am very familiar with. They grow a lot of their own stock from propagation so it is a nice test on the climate and the plants are acclimated already.
