George Tabor Azalea Anniversary Present

Our George Tabor Azalea plants gave us a beautiful anniversary present this year! All of our azaleas were beautiful but the soft pink blooms of the George Tabor made it an the absolute favorite.

Our winters in South Louisiana are normally not as long or cold as most other states but this year was especially cold. Sometimes our temps were lower than many northern cities. So when our azaleas started blooming in mid-March, we were very excited! By the first of April, our front porch bed was almost glowing with the beautiful pink blooms of our George Tabor Azalea.

Unfortunately, all good things eventually come to an end. It is the same with azaleas – this photo shows what happens when their blooms expire after a couple of weeks of absolute beauty:
