No idea what this bush is called, I’d appreciate the info, should anybody know.

But its delicate flowers light up the spring days every year.

It would be nice if the bush produced more flowers, but since I do not know its name, I also don’t know how to care for it.

Habar nu am cum se numeste tufisul asta, m-as bucura sa aflu, daca stie cineva.

Insa florile lui delicate infrumuseteaza zilele de primavara in fiecare an.

Ar fi dragut daca tufisul ar produce mai multe flori, dar cum nu stiu cum se numeste, nu stiu nici cum sa ma ocup de el.

  1. Hi!
    This looks like an azalea and all it needs is acid soil and some pruning right after blooming. If you prune too far from blooming time, you will remove the buds for next year (even when you can’t see them). The wall may be leaching to make the soil not acid enough. Also, I can’t see what exposure the plant has: in our geography we don’t plant them in direct all day sun or they will get scorched. Dappled shade, if possible, which is what the wall gives, I suspect. Look up azalea care on web and they will advise. Best of luck to you – your photos are wonderful and I love your blog!

    • Hi, thank you so much for these tips. I’m quite embarassed now, if it is an azalea, since we live on a street with this name. I’ll look it up. Thank you for the kind words!

  2. It is Azalea. Like shady location and acidic soil.
