Am I crazy, or don't these flowers look more like roses than azaleas? They're double, the wrong shape and no anthers are showing. Plus the cluster isn't like an azalea either.

Beautiful, though. I will admit I haven't looked at a lot of new azaleas recently.

Azalea (Rhododendron 'Rozalea Coral Pink')

They sure do look like roses but it's definitely an Azalea. Smiling
