What I would be looking for, is a fabulous garden, I don’t even remember exactly where it was/is, but somewhere in the South Island of New Zealand there was a wall of deciduous azaleas in full colour, backing onto a still pond. It took my breath away.
|Azalea Luteum (Yellow) and Azalea Persil (White)|
|Azalea Golden Eagle|
We have Azalea Gibraltar and Golden Eagle doing very well , and they are large enough now to make real impact.
From there I planted Persil, a lovely white with yellow markings and my very favourite - Irene Koster. She is a soft pink with yellow makings, but best of all, her fragrance is wonderful. I have planted several amongst the upper woodland section of garden and she is sublime this year.

Just lovely, I must plant many more, and that's a resolution I will definitely keep.
