Rhodies and Azaleas – a bit moreMay 2nd, 2010 by Peg Tillery
I am still trying to get the hang of this blogging thing. Earlier tonight I wrote a blog about rhodies and azaleas, posted it with an error and then when I tried to fix the error I lost half the blog post. Aaarrggghhh!
So, dear readers, here’s the rest of the story and a few more photos of some of the rhodies in our garden.
April through early June are the perfect times of year to relish rhodies and azaleas. These plants bloom profusely in our northwest gardens.
A great place to stroll through acres of rhodies to enjoy them and their relatives and companion plantings is Whitney Gardens in Brinnon – a short drive from Kitsap.
We went overboard in our garden the first few years we lived here and recently we had to edit out several of these lovely plants. But, in doing so we’ve learned to enjoy even more the plants we kept.
The rhodies we kept make a gorgeous backdrop for other plantings. We kept the ones on the edges and have low growing azaleas in the borders.
