Azalea for sure. I have some but can't give you their name. They were planted at my brother's house when it was passed to us in 2003.
Any day you wake up on the sunny side of the grass is a good day.

Perhaps it is Azalea southern indica 'formosa'

Thanks! I learned something interesting from all this:

"Azaleas have been reclassified and are now in the genus Rhododendron. There are no clear cut lines for distinguishing all azaleas from all rhododendrons but here are a few characteristics to look for. True rhododendrons have 10 or more stamens which is 2 per lobe. Azaleas usually have 5 stamens or 1 per lobe."

Welcome! Ricardo. Although I have been gardening for years, I have learned lots of useful information here.
