Neutral vossner On Feb 8, 2013, vossner from Richmond, TX (Zone 9a) wrote:

Rating neutral as new in my garden (Feb 2013). My average with azaleas is about 50/50. I've been successful in shady, moist locations and completely failed in bright shade but not as moist.

The Midnight Flares I've planted are in a moist area, so I'm hopeful. I have tiny plants but they are in a spot where it doesn't matter too much. My tiny plants have blooms and the red is spectacular. Oh, I hope they make it.
