Last year I bought & planted something only named Peggy Ann, Pink & White. It looks similar to an azalea, but cannot find anything on it. Can you help?Thank you for any information possible.

What you have is an evergreen azalea, officially called ?Roehr?s Peggy Ann?. It's a late blooming azalea, hardy to -5?F. Its creamy pastel pink to white centers yield to light rose-purple margins on these 2" ?hose-in-hose? blooms. Flowers are further graced by flecks of matching rose-purple, and chartreuse pistil and stamens add the illusion of a pale lime eye deep in the corolla. This plant maintains a compact form. Hope this clarifies things for you!
