Azaleas arrive for next year's Garden Tour


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Garden owners on next year's Azalea Garden Tour are tending to some special flowers tonight.

The Cape Fear Garden Club continued its annual tradition of accepting Encore Azaleas today at Airlie Gardens. It then handed them out to the 2013 Azalea Garden Tour owners.

As everyone sorted through the plants, there was only one thing on their minds: planting them of course.

"I wish I coulda got one of every one of them, but we got ten, and I'm going to be putting them out today," Mike Caulder said.

Caulder and the other tour participants each got ten Encore Azalea plants to feature in their gardens.

The Azalea Garden Tour runs April 12-14 during the 2013 North Carolina Azalea Festival.
