Plant an Azalea Week celebrates the importance of the azalea to our community and encourages residents to plant an azalea in their yards.  Plant an Azalea cards may be purchased in the gift shop at Airlie Gardens and for every card sold, an azalea is planted in a New Hanover County park.  To date, more than 150 azaleas have been planted in our parks!

Plant an Azalea Week is a joint program of NHC Parks & Gardens, Cape Fear Garden Club and NHC Parks Conservancy.  A celebration ceremony will be held on Tuesday, April 4th at 10am at Hugh MacRae Park.
