Yet another question for plant experts -- I'm thinking that these are  Hino Crimson Azaleas. Am I correct?

 

Thanks in advance.

Yikes, I snapped some azaleas an hour ago! They were pink. I asked three passing women what they were. Like me, none of them had a clue. Thanks, John.

Figuring out that they were azeleas was the easy part. Apparently, there are about 10,000 types of azeleas. 😲

Now I'm thinking that the plant I photographed might be Japanese azelea or azelea Japonica.

 

Perhaps I should just stick with "red azeleas" -- too many azeleas for me. 🥱

Certainly one of the small flowered evergreen Japanese azaleas,  'Hino Crimson' is probably the commonest deep red but there are many others.  Parentage is - to say the least - complicated so it's best not to give a species name.

Thanks very much, John. I'm happy with that.
