Seat with standard azaleas

Postby midgin » Wed Aug 29, 2007 3:18 pm

I love these std. azaleas... I have let them grow for the effect of a few branches hanging down....almost to the ground. :shock:

Pic is looking across a pot to the garden near the window.

These azaleas are very colourful... :shock: :shock: . maybe the colour is not for the faint hearted :wink:

Thanks guys, no Thee thats not a GS... bought it with some money I won on lotto..( from memory).
Tilly... this azalea is a sun tolerant one, which is excellent.
My biggest problem is the A. lace bug.... mongrels that they are, they totally uglify (did I make that word up??) the leaves.
Don't be afraid to colour outside the lines.

Now that's my kind of colour - love it, midgin! And the way you've designed the azaleas to 'drape' (Y) :D
