Azaleas To Be In Full Bloom Masters Week

Posted: Updated:
Augusta, GA -

There's some good news this year when it comes to beautiful sites to see during Masters Week.  Experts say the azaleas will be in full bloom - just in time for the thousands who will be visiting from all over the world.  Unlike years past, the recent cold snap the Garden City received has kept the flowers from blooming all the way.

"Everything was about three to four weeks earlier than normal, and it's probably a week or so later than normal this year.  This cool weather, they just stay tight in their buds, and then when it warms up, they pop open like they are now so it's going to be really nice this year," said Suzanne Holmes, Horticulture Program Assistant for the UGA-Richmond County Extension Office.

Holmes says it's been about three years since the azaleas have hit their peak just in time for the Masters.
