On the right is a picture of all the Rhododendron periclymenoides 'Pinxterbloom' (used to be R. nudiflorum) that we have for sale as of the date in the lower right hand corner of the picture (click the image for a larger version you can study more closely). We plant pinxterblooms in a raised bed cold frame box where they can easily be scooped out into the right sized pot and that I will price between $5 and $15 depending on size (as they get bigger we may scoop out every other one to plant elsewhere).

Pinxterbloom plugs are sold as of June 2014 for $5 each + 8% tax. Once they are transplanted into the raised bed we usually add a dollar to $6 each.
20 pinxterbloom plugs at $5 each being sent mail order in a medium sized flat rate priority box from the post office across the street.
Each spring I purchase 200 seedlings of Rhododendron periclymenoides pinxterbloom azalea germinated from seed collected on the Appalachian Trail. People email me and call on my phone asking about availability; either of larger or smaller plants. Customers can email me or call me on my cell phone at 518-526-9101 asking if its to late to order pinxterbloom azaleas mailorder. The seedlings arrive (I take pictures and insert them in the newsletter) and I make them available for $5 each. I call you back to ask for a check and when I get it I deposit it into my acount. I will probably send all the mail order out together at the same time at the end of the month (we get charged $25 every time an inspector is called in to check outgoing plants so we like to have at least $250 worth of plants going out before making that call) after the agricultural inspector examines them. The email you send me asking to subscribe and telling me you want to purchase pinxterbloom azaleas is your order form so include how many plants you want, your mailing address in such a way that I can cut it out and stick it to the box, phone numbers etc. I will print it out and prioritize it by when I received the order on my waiting list in case we run out of Azaleas (I add your first name, the date of your email and what you want at the top of the list, the earliest order on the list is at the bottom). Most people interested in mail-order might buy 5 ($25), 10 ($50) or 20 ($100) plants for $5 each plus 8% tax plus the cost of Flat Rate Priority US Mail ($12.35 in the medium size as of May 2013). As I prepare the orders in June I will call you back to see if you still want the plants, to discuss any problems with your order and tell you how much you should make your check out for (to Azalea House at our PO Box 49, Voorheesville, NY 12186). As the plugs start to get root bound I transplant into the pinxterbloom box though I can still easily scoop them out to fit the priority mail packages. Piedmont Azalea or Rhododendron canescens, native south of the Carolinas is also called the pinxter Azalea so make sure you know which pinxter you want by providing the botanical name, because we dont have any Piedmont Azalea at this time.
