Garden Walk
of Autumn Azaleas & Rhododendrons

November portraits of
'Washington State Centiennial' Azalea



'Centennial' or 'Washington State Centennial' was
developed for the celebration of our state's centennial in 1989,
& was hybridized right here in the Northwest
by Dr. Frank Mossman. I's autumn colors are invariably
exciting. This early November portrait shows it just beginning
to make the change from shiny deep sea green to burgundy.


This will be a big shrub someday, but we only got it this
year, & azaleas can be slow growing. Fortunately they have
their mature behaviors even when a scant two feet tall. A few
days after the other November photo, our infant shrub's leaves
are increasing in their burgundy & purple hues.


Most of the azaleas have lost their leaves well before
the first week of December, but our 'Centennial' during
its first year in the ground reached its apex of color. Within
a week it will begin to drop its leaves
