    we haven't been hist since Gloria in 86 I think.

    We will be ready. Plenty of chains, saws extra gas cans and a generator to run a couple circuits in the house.......Would realy like a real back up generator that starts as soon as the power goes out.....

    Bad thing is, only place I can put it is on the other side of the house opposite of where the fuse box is, but that is where the gas is...........:p

    "Every once in a while, there is a new introduction of real horticultural significance which enhances landscaping potential considerably. A new hybridized selection of Azaleas was recently intoduced that are true, reliable Autumn bloomers (in addition to spring). Discovered by Robert E. Lee (yes that's correct) of Independence, LA., and trial tested by Flowerwood Nurseries of Loxley, AL, this new hybrid is a proven winner that extends the blooming season of Azaleas beyond the relatively short spring period. Called the "Autumn Series", they bloom on new wood, not previous years wood, therefore will produce a new full flush of bloom in late summer or early fall in addition to spring. There are now 13 different hybrids (ranging from pink to orange-red to purple) introduced, tested, and available in the nursery trade. These are pictured and described below: More "Encore" varieties are expected to be introduced as experimentation and trials continue. All "Encore Azaleas" are patent protected. "

    Thanks Gopher

    As the site tells us they will bloom in Spring and Fall. Now I am just wondering as to the trimming requirements. Specificaly if fall trimming after the bloom affects the spring flower? I don't see there would be a problem trimming after the spring flower, as the article says it blooms in new wood.

    If they are true "new wood" bloomers then there is no problem. I'll have to talk with my nursery people about this. Interesting possibilities that need exploring.
