In addition to being renowned for its beauty, the azalea is also highly toxic—it contains andromedotoxins in both its leaves and nectar, including honey from the nectar. Bees are deliberately fed on Azalea/Rhododendron nectar in some parts of Turkey, producing a mind-altering, potentially medicinal, and occasionally lethal honey known as "mad honey". According to the ancient Roman historian Pliny the Elder in his Natural History, an army invading Pontus in Turkey was poisoned with such honey, resulting in their defeat. One of the grandest and maybe gaudiest garden and landscape shows is the blooming of the Southern indica azaleas, especially in south Mississippi. One native azalea is Rhododendron canescens, commonly called piedmont or honeysuckle azalea. Its flowers are primarily various shades of pretty pink and delicate rose with white accents. As an added treat, these flowers are very fragrant and pleasant on a calm, early-morning garden stroll. The other common Mississippi native azalea is Rhododendron austrinum, otherwise known as Florida flame azalea. You might guess by the name that the flower color range includes yellows, oranges and fiery reds. It’s a treat to drive along Interstate 10 in the early spring and spot these azaleas growing in their native habitat. But that was never really relevant was it? That's not what you wanted to hear :) You could have found that online anywhere :)
People have all sorts of facets, and they're not all online :)
Some people act like different people at different times, and places, and with different people. Hahaha!!!
