Early spring blooming, great fragrance, spindlely shrub/tree 8 to 10 feet tall.
I’ve seen a few native azaleas blooming this week. I think that is what this is. Check out what Walter says here http://www.walterreeves.com/gardening-q-and-a/native-azalea/
What a treasure! You have a native azalea, which is sometimes called ‘bush honeysuckle’. If you want to verify which one you have, go to this site: http://www.tjhsst.edu/~dhyatt/ars/
This is a Native Azalea. I will guess it to be a variety named Alabama Azalea, (Rhododendron alabamense) based on the color and the fragrance.
My honeysuckle has 90% died. Remaining leaves
curl some and no new growth noted on vines. Any
common disease I could treat?
Jim is your honeysuckle vine growing near any easements or right of ways that may have been treated with herbicides?
