Rescue azalea blooming in zone 5a!

Ames, IA

Hello everyone-
I rescued this azalea from Lowe's last July or August for only $2.00. When I pulled it off of the clearance rack, there was nothing wrong with it except that it was through flowering. There was not an identification tag, so I wasn't sure what color the flowers would be. Well now I know! I brought her inside to overwinter in the "plant room". This is a small room with a lot of windows so it stays rather cool (I'm in Iowa), and I've had the plant under some lights. I keep her well watered and have not fertilized her since the move indoors, and she has grown quite a lot since I bought her. I have no experience with azaleas so I am pleasantly surprised!

I like that Lowes discounted area . . . After seeing your shrub I bet you do too! It's beautiful and only $2.00????
