Where do you stand on the Great Autumn Azalea Debate?

Azaleas used to be the most beloved spring flower in my part of the South. Then a Louisiana native bred azaleas that bloom three times a year in a burst of colors — red, white, and lavender — and have names like “Autumn Fire” and “Autumn Royalty.”

Now azaleas are a year-round flower, absent mainly during the coldest days of winter.
