This looks beautiful! Did you gradually reduce this native azalea over years or buy it as a small shrub? I feel like this warrants your input for the purpose of this thread
I’ve got lots of native azalea on our lot here in western North Carolina including flame azalea and what looks like rhododendron maximum with white flowers. I lightly pruned Them last year and cut some Crowding trees which should provide them a little more dappled sunlight. They seem to have backbudded well but are still long and leggy so I am going to try to prune more aggressively this year after spring flush and see how they do...I just love them, trying to make them focal point of back yard path... thanks!
