Cornell Pink had buds April 15th, bloomed heavily, and there are still some pretty blossoms left. That makes over five weeks of pretty flowers. My Northern Lights azaleas which are also exceptionally pretty and hardy haven't begun opening up. So I highly recommend this shrub if you like Azaleas and want to begin the season with this and or azalea dauricum Midwinter. Also, Bumble bees love this azalea!
