I am fascinated with what I call "azaleas as punctuation marks." Some people fill their landscape with wide swaths of pinks, purples and white azaleas, as if they were using flowers to paint a master impressionist painting. Other use azaleas like dots. For two weeks they are bright pink exclamations marks. Then they return to being periods, commas and colons when the blooms fade. Here is one example at Parkview Church of God.
