Diamond,
Go down to Morikami gardens in Delray. They have quite a few types that should be blooming now.
IMO azaleas are not worth the trouble in PBC. Reward is not worth the risk.
You may be able to keep them alive and green, but they don't put on much of a show.

Plant this is more of the answer I am looking for. I wanted to know how they perform in PBC. Some of my customers have them, but it is such a small amount I don't pay as much attention to them.

There is a yard next to one of mine in PBC with a of hedge of mature Formosas that seem to be doing well. Judging on how the property is maintained, I doubt they do anything special. One of my properties has a couple - they look they were probably potted plants that someone put in. They have been marginal up until now, but they really look spectacular this year. I'm guessing because of the cold.

I'm not sure if the limiting factor is lack of acidity, strength of the sun, or a need for some cooler weather. The first two can be worked around & certain varieties like the Formosas are more heat tolerant. I used to work for a wholesale nursery in Houston & we used to sell azaleas by the 1000's and they did put on quite a show in the spring.

I was also told you can't grow hydrangeas this far south, but I was in Panama (Central America that is, with daily highs in the mid 90's to upper 80's, annual low was maybe 65) and was startled to see several plantings doing very well.
