The azaleas are blooming in Baton Rouge, and they have been for at least a month. I think they hit peak blooming last weekend.
One thing I really regret that we did at our house when we first moved in was cut down three big azalea bushes in the back yard. I didn't know what azalea meant, or how beautiful they were, and I was pregnant, emotional and my house was full of guests. I wasn't thinking straight.
We have a small bush in our front yard next to our front window. It doesn't bloom much, although there are probably 10 blossoms now. Nothing like the lush displays I see when driving down Highland or in the Garden District.
You live and learn I guess. Wait at least one full year before doing any major landscaping if you can help it.
