The azaleas in Nacogdoches are starting to bloom a little early and they look really nice.
The centerpieces of the azalea trail are the 25 miles of self-guided driving routes that meander through the Nacogdoches as well as the the Ruby M. Mize azalea garden, also known as the largest azalea garden in state.
“We’re about seven to ten days earlier than we are normally and that’s because of the mild February,” said Dr. Dave Creech of SFA Gardens. “Of course it’s short-sleeve weather today. So I suspect that we’ll begin blooming now and go for another month.”
Dr. Creech says the only negative effect of the rain is sometimes the azaleas that have already bloomed get a little mildew, but the weather has been great otherwise.
Look for the many signs in Nacogdoches about the azalea trails and check them out.
