In one of entrances into city garden of Baton Rouge, LA, we will see white Azalea flowers.
February or March is blooming time for Azalea in our southern state areas. Our white azalea blooms in about 1 to 3 weeks only.
I think that 1 to 3 weeks is considered short period of blooming. Other flowers have longer period of blooming.
As suggested by David Beaulieu (2020, published in the Spruce), some long bloom periods flowers are:
- Coneflower, about two months
- Shasta daisy, around 5 weeks
- Ice plant, 4 weeks
- Lavender, 3 to 4 weeks
- Garden Phlox, 6 weeks
- Russian Sage, last to 15 weeks
Actually, we have red azaleas in our backyard, and many of my neighbors have grows variety of Azalea.
At early stage, we just need little work such as:
- give cover during cold seasons.
Then, maintenance is easy. This flower is not considered as high maintenance plant.
