Well, we’ve got some good news and we’ve got some bad news.
Al Hight, director of the New Hanover County Cooperative Extension, said there will be azaleas in bloom during the festival of its namesake. But that doesn’t mean we’ll be in full bloom for the festivities.
“They are behind what they normally are,” Hight said. “Some of the early ones will be blooming no problem.”
Unfortunately, there are some azaleas that haven’t had enough warmth to coax them into full bloom, Hight said.
Those late bloomers will either be at full bloom the very end of the festival of the days immediately following.
“You’ll have plenty of flowers,” Hight said.
