Orange Azalea In May

Hello Friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Orange Azalea 5920a” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The Orange Azalea is definitely one of my favorites. It seems like the point where this one blooms marks the last cold snap. Well, more or less the last one.

Like the red maple keys this azalea make my imagination well up with images of the plant storing up the heat of the sun until it finally erupts into flames. The unopened buds even resemble fire with their conical form.

It’s also a favorite of the local butterflies. They all gather on it every year when the flowers open. I’m not certain that they’re native to the area but the do seem to grow wild. I don’t really see as many of them in the woods as I did when I growing up but we actually called them honeysuckle. Which they’re not. I have also noticed that the hummingbirds are attracted to them and when they bloom that means that I should be watching for the hummingbirds to return.

The blooms are short lived. In a few weeks they’ll be scattered across my lawn but for now they are pure joy!
