Native Azalea Collection

Saturday I rode up to Statesboro to the Georgia Southern University...  
annual spring plant sale. 
After grabbing up some great  plants, trees and shrubs 
I took off to explore the woodland trails and gardens. 


As I got deeper into the woods there was a glow
 that kept pulling me in. 



Once I got close enough I realized it was a stand of  native azalea
 in bloom and what a beautiful sight it was to see.. 


the colors were amazing

 a fiery glow

then a softer glow



the pink and white were just as beautiful
 as the bight yellows and orange



I have been to the plant sale several times but never had the opportunity to just wonder around, boy have I been missing out. 
If you are anywhere near the gardens talk a walk through the trails there are beautiful surprises waiting just for you.
hugs ya'll, Cherry

I am adding this post to Miss Tootsie Time Friday Flaunt because they are just to pretty to not show off.
Come see what everyone else is flaunting today.
A big thank you to Miss Glenda for hosting this great party every week.

  2. There is nothing in the gardening world to compare with visiting a native azalea plot. I've been to Ichauway Plantation In Baker County where there is a large collection of Mr. Varnadoe's hybrids among others and to a private plantation in Thomasville that knocked my socks off. It was like a Green Cathedral.

    Did you buy any native azaleas at the sale?

  6. Absolutely gorgeous! I have many Azaleas and Rhodos in my garden but none like those. Love the way the stamens and pistils are so pronounced.

  12. I looooove native azaleas. I see them in the woods all the time when we are turkey hunting. I need to take some ribbon with me and tie to it. Then go back and get it. They are so pretty
