Trees Atlanta - TreeHouse
112 Krog St. Suite 7, Atlanta, GA 30307

Georgia has more native azaleas within its borders than any other state – perhaps one of the reasons the azalea is our official state wildflower. We will explore these beautiful plants, specifically their many species and cultivars. We will discover how they grow in the wild and the benefits of including them into Atlanta gardens and natural landscapes.

Speaker Ernest F. Koone III is President of Lazy K Nursery, Inc., and Garden Delights, LLC in Pine Mountain Georgia. Ernest has been a grower and tireless advocate of native azaleas for over 40 years. He is the largest grower of Native Azaleas in the United States and will be bringing some plants for purchase, and will also raffle a unique specimen. Proceeds benefit the planting of a new native azaleas collection on the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum – a collaboration by Trees Atlanta and the Azalea Chapter of the American Rhododendron Society.

This talk is the opening event in our Arboretum Collections Series focusing on Native Azaleas of Georgia. Two Speaker Series Talks, two planting projects and hands on workshops on the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum, and a special field trip in the spring will comprise our collaboration with the Georgia Azalea Chapter of the American Rhododendron Society.

Thank you to the following organizations whose support enables Trees Atlanta to bring you this education event.
