Of course my favorite Azalea would be the Florida Azalea, Rhododendron austrinum

This one's in the parking lot in Fern Valley; I could smell it from a few parking spaces away when I stopped in after work. This particular plant is a bit precocious, most of the other R. austrinum individuals aren't flowering yet but they're close. I think the heat absorbed by the paved parking lot speeds it up a bit. Directly across the road is a cool small tree, Red Buckeye or Aesculus pavia with bright red erect inflorescences.
