Azaleas arrive for next year's Garden Tour


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The North Carolina Azalea Festival is still months away, but the Azalea Garden Tour began taking shape today.

Encore Azalea donated various types of the plant to next year's Garden Tour owners, so they can begin gearing up for next spring's big event.

They won't have to wait until then to enjoy the spring color. The flowers on some are in fall

"We're excited to have these come in, and it's a great gift for our garden owners," 2014 Azalea Garden Tour Chair Rebecca Philpott said. "And we hope people will come to the tour in the spring."

The Cape Fear Garden Club, which organizes the Azalea Garden Tour, puts proceeds from each year's tour right back into the community through scholarships and beautification projects.
