Last year in my neighborhood I discovered a beautiful small tree with spring white blossoms. I shared it in a post on March 7th. I talked to the home owner, and he didn’t know the name of the tree. It was a gift from his uncle a few years ago. I studied the size, shape, and blossoms of the tree and I believe it is a large azalea grown as a tree.
Spectacular flower masses and colors, plant form, and evergreen foliage are among the reasons for the popularity of azaleas. Florida azaleas bloom from late February to early April, depending on cultivar and seasonal variation. Many azalea cultivars grow well in north and central Florida.

This last week I’ve gone to see the tree’s blossoms 3 times. The skies are blue and the white blossoms are beautiful against the sky.
Around the bottom of the tree are amaryllis.
White blossoms and red amaryllis shout spring is here in central Florida.
For those of you up north where spring comes later, I hope a glimpse of my spring flowers brightens your day.
