My most brilliant native azalea is 'Scarlet Ibis' which is actually a hybrid of Rhododendron austrinum and something else, can't remember what. This palamedes swallowtail was nectaring from it this morning -

This is blooming so late in the summer? Does this bloom only at this time, Sherry?

It is a beautiful plant.

No, Tom, the azalea blooms in March, which is when I posted the picture. 'Scarlet Ibis' is my most brilliant native azalea!
