I'm with you - I think a progression of bloom makes a garden very interesting. Azalea's like acidic soils and anything you plant near them should like acidic soils, as well. How about Dianthus (pinks), Catharanthus roseus (Madagascar periwinkle), Heliotrope, Lobelia, Salvia, Verbena or Nemesia? All are colorful companions to azalea's - I have most of them in my own yard!
