Lol, me too!

Do you think it would matter where the hedge is? In other words, if it was to be a 'natural fence' between neighboring yards v a border for sidewalk or street?

The color is gorgeous on that one. I only have 1 rather small azalea located close to the front of my house, it's a violet purple color which is also nice.

I also have 3 'carpet rose' bushes which are similar in color to the azalea above. Not sure what they're called? The people that lived here before us called them 'carpet roses' because they bow over onto the ground & look like a carpet of roses (the bees love them ~ they're harmless when feeding ~ they fill themselves up & look a little 'drunk' as they fly around afterwards). Mostly I'm a 'caretaker' for the plants they had growing here, I love them & have added some things along the way.

The ones in that pic look like Formosa, which is the majority of what I have in my yard. You do need to trim underneath them occasionally, because any branches that come in contact with the ground will form roots, which will cause the shrubs to become wider and wider over time.

I believe these are also Formosa, obviously not in bloom.
