The Ruby Mize Azalea Garden | SFA Botanic Gardens


On the west side of University drive and directly across from the Gayla Mize garden is the Ruby Mize Azalea Garden. Unfortunately we were about a month too early for the spectacular blooms of the azaleas, but it was still a nice walk through the small garden here.

More camellias! If only we could keep the deer off of our remaining camelia in our yard…

It was definitely the transition time for the end of the camellias and the beginning of the azaleas. Next year we’ll have to plant to visit east Texas in March to see the azaleas in Lufkin and Nacogdoches.

    Camellia is one of the things I literally LUST after, plant-wise. Two Christmases ago, Tom got me a bonsai camellia and it didn’t make it- babied it for eight months and it just shriveled and died 🙁 But they are so amazing.
