I was thrilled this morning when I discovered the blooms on this azalea. This was in a basket at my Dad's funeral which I brought home. It wasn't doing well so I went to a nursery and talked to them about it. They told me what to do to try and save it so I bought the root stimulator and food they recommended and planted it where they said it should grow and planted it using the root stimulator and then I fed it when they told me to. It struggled all last summer but so did most of our flowers. The summer heat here is brutal and a lot of the flowers, especially new ones, struggle just to stay alive. I water them every day during the heat. My little azalea showed signs of staying stable and now it is budding and will be in full bloom soon. It brought a tear to my eye to know that this plant from my Dad's funeral was going to live and bloom now after it nearly died.
