A Late Season Bloomer, The Pride of Mobile Azaleas here are also the oldest Azaleas on the Farm. They were originally planted more than 60 years ago and are still probably the most widely planted Azaleas in the Southern United States. Watermelon Red with three inch flowers and dark green foliage, they grow pretty much upright and reach heights of 8 to 10 feet with a spread of up 15 feet. The color is my absolutely favorite and I’m sure I photograph them more than anything else grown here with the possible exception of Sunflowers.
