This spreading, deeply pink azalea reminds me of the Master’s Golf Tournament. Along the fairways at Augusta National there are masses of blooming azaleas in May. Here in Rancho Santa Fe, we have our azalea show a little earlier, in March.
Another of the South African bulbs that do so well in Rancho Santa Fe gardens is Freesia. Giving us a wonderful show in spring, Freesia then sleep under the earth until next year, even with no summer water. The pink tips on this Freesia add a cheerful note.
