Deanna of "My Loves, My Life" expressed amazement that an azalea bush would be twelve feet high. All you southerners know they get that tall and even taller. But I didn't expect to find such a tall azalea in Connecticut. Here it is as seen from the window of my former dining room, now studio.
Here is the same azalea as seen from the path to the back porch.
These bushes are near our lake house in Virginia. They are six to eight feet tall.
