Fact: I am always delighted when “azalea” is used in crossword puzzles.
I’m pleased every time I know the name of some member of the plant kingdom, and surprised to find that a lot of people don’t know (or just don’t care about?!) very many plant names. This is our world, we should know the names of the things that surround us. That said, I often question whether I’m getting azaleas and rhododendrons mixed up. Now I’ve learned why – they’re related! Thanks, McC!
