Flower for the Day Azalea 4-21

Azaleas are flowering shrubs in the genus Rhododendron. So all azaleas are rhododendrons.
My azaleas are over 30 years old and are beginning to show it. Some have died off and have      
 been replaced. I have two kinds: Herbert  has a 'single' flower and blooms first, and Karen has a 
'double' flower and blooms several weeks later.

Below is Herbert with a 'single' bloom (one row of petals).

Below is Karen with a 'double 'row of petals. This is called hose in hose.
