Azaleas in Texas

Red Ruffle Azalea for Texas
I could write a big huge post on soil amendment, peat moss, organic matter, water, shade all that stuff but if you are looking for azalea information you have already run across that.  The issue for this website is, do azaleas do well in Texas?  East Texas, yes.  Everywhere else, sometimes, it’s a struggle.  If you have lots of time, money, water, attention, you can make them work anywhere in Texas.
Red Ruffle (and pink ruffle) are great Texas Azaleas.

Hinodegiri Azaleas bloom at the same time:

Azaleas and Dogwoods are natural companions!  But everyone knows this, right, like peanut butter and jelly, carrots and peas.  This is not news.
