The Great Smoky Mountains Association just published the following wildflower report for June 14th, 2013 for :
Gregory Bald – Flame Azalea Progress Report
There are only a couple of Azalea Shrubs in full bloom, there are probably less than a dozen with a fourth to a third of their blooms open and many of the shrubs buds are showing no color at this time.
Layman’s estimate of peak of blooms – 10 days to two weeks from now although period of hot weather could shorten the time before the blooms peak.
