- My ancestors settled in Georgia from Austria in 1734. A cousin recently told me she had some azaleas that had been brought over by our Salzburger ancestors. I haven't seen them yet, but I'm guessing they're more like the naive (wild) azalea. She says the blooms are orange. Do you know of azaleas brought from Europe, or are azaleas native to North America.I'm wondering if perhaps an ancestor simply transplanted azaleas from the original settlement to their new home a bit farther away.

“Now all of political economy from prehistory on to 1932 has been intent upon one thing only—how to take the wealth from the producer, how to take the food from the person who cultivated it and harvested it and give him very little in return. But when you take too much, you can kill the goose that lays the golden egg.” – Charles Walters
- That is a photo of seed of the dodder plant, a Cuscuta species, and not the azalea forming seed. It is a parasitic vine which has attached itself to the azalea, and it should be removed. It can stunt the plant's growth and also is known to spread disease.Thanks for writing to the forum,ElaineOn Wednesday, October 19, 2016 4:37 PM, "PseudoNameForMe@...

It is also growing on a Youpon plant that is right next to the azalea plant. Can anybody tell me what this is or what to do for it?Much thanksSent from AOL Mobile Mail
