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.

I will never forget the azaleas we saw when we were visiting Pennsylvania years ago. So abundant and vibrant -- and ;large bushes of them. It was May. They don't grow well around here.

the teach, hi it was a pretty big planting job. Most of the perennials were groups of three and five.

chrisj, hello. There is nothing quite like Azalea time.

That's a beautiful Ebury azalea Chris, one I don't have. I love the deep red orange outer petal contrasting the cream yellow innards. Now you've got me started again. ;)
