Its looks like Honeysuckle but I've never seen a white and pink one.

I'm afraid not. It was one of many beautiful specimens at the Ruby M. Mize Azalea Garden on the SFA campus in Nacogdoches, TX. What an amazing garden!

Native deciduous Azaleas have blooms like those and they grow well on the Gulf Coast, so it's probably one of those.

I adore Azalea's! They are a staple in landscapes in parts of the south and so beautiful in the spring when in full bloom! I planted quite a few when we bought our house in 1975 and although the February bloom time was fairly short here in central Florida, they were a sight to see. We lost all of them (along with the pines and other trees they were planted beneath) to the hurricanes of 2004. I had to google the Ruby M. Mize Azalea Gardens in Nacogdoches and it looks like a beautiful place, I'd love to visit that 8 acre garden next March when they have their annual tour! What an amazing sight it must be!

I did some googling and apparently Azaleas are grown in zone 5: http://www.ehow.com/info_8054335_evergreen-shrubs-zone-5.htm...

There's even a Lake Michigan Chapter of the Azalea Society of America: http://www.azaleas-lake-michigan.org/Convention-intro.cfm
