Woodland Shade Gardening

Woodland shade gardening with a purpose – pleasure, creativity, rainwater collection!

Blossoms are darker this year.

Four years ago we transplanted many azaleas from red clay in a front bed, to the natural woodland floor along the back edge of the back yard.  They immediately responded very well, seeming to say the new area was perfect for where they wanted to be.  Maybe their roots have tapped into the deep, rich silt soil, because they are blooming in much more rich shades this year.  Do any of you gardeners think this is what’s happening?  I haven’t fertilized at all, so that is not the reason for the deepening of the colors.
