All About Azaleas Webinar Series

Online, AL

The Alabamanese Chapter of the Azalea Society of America is partnering with Alabama Cooperative Extension to offer a public educational program about azaleas this spring. A four part “All About Azaleas” series of webinars via Zoom will be presented by Extension agents, Extension specialists, local Society members, and azalea enthusiasts. The goal of this introductory azalea course is to increase the appreciation and knowledge of azaleas as well as build up interest in membership. The target audience will be the general public, master gardeners, horticulturists, Society members, and anyone who just loves azaleas. With Covid-19 restrictions continuing, we hope this will be a welcoming and beneficial alternative.
