Record-setting Virginia RB Devin Flowers commits to SU as walk-on - syracuse.com
Ferri visited Glen Allen early that fall, and the two set up a game-day visit.Flowers was in the Carrier Dome for SU’s 51-41 win over then-No. 22 North Carolina State and experienced the postgame pandemonium in the locker room firsthand. The victory gave SU bowl eligibility for the first time in five years, and the memory of head coach Dino Babers’ speech to his players stuck with Flowers.“I just remembered how pumped Coach Babers was and how he really can get to the team,” Flowers said. “You can easily tell how great of a coach he is and a person.”Flowers sat down one-on-one with Babers before leaving and also recalls a positive conversation with running backs coach Mike Lynch. The Orange values powerful runners who can be called on in short-yardage situations, Lynch told him, and Flowers believes he can take on that role.Since then, Flowers explored his options. He strongly considered a preferred walk-on opportunity at Florida State but settled on the Orange this week.Flowers becomes the second preferred walk-on to commit to Syracuse in the last two weeks, joining New Jersey linebacker Tyler Cook.Stephen Bailey covers Syracuse football for The Post-Standard/Syracuse.com.

How Azaleas Became the Signature Flowers of the South - HowStuffWorks
Some other Southern spots to view these fabulous flowers: The gardens at Tryon Palace in New Bern, North Carolina, where azalea gardens can be found blooming in naturalized beds during the spring, along with thousands of tulip bulbs; Airlie Gardens in Wilmington, North Carolina, complete with 67 acres (27 hectares) boasting more than 100,000 azaleas; and Brookgreen Gardens, between Myrtle Beach and Pawleys Island in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, where you'll find a former rice plantation sporting one of the largest collections of outdoor sculptures in the U.S. on 551 acres (223 hectares) surrounded by azaleas, camellias and live oaks.
So, why have azaleas become the signature flowers of the South? While these plants can be grown in many areas across the U.S., they prefer the moist, well-drained acidic soil and partial shade of the Southeastern U.S. "Due to their showiness and their adaptability to the climate — making them pretty easy to grow — they are popular in the region," explains Patricia Collins, who is now retired after serving 52 years as director of gardens, education and volunteers for Callaway Gardens.
Azaleas tend to be popular in the Southern region as ornamentals due to their evergreen leaves, adds Scott Fanello, editor of Totalgardener.com. "They offer beautiful flowers in the spring and deep green leaves year-round," he says. "Plus, the flowers virtually cover the bush, adding more color in the spring than almost any other plant other than annuals, which you have to replant every year."
Now, For the Basics ...
Azaleas belong to the genus Rhododendron, while evergreen azaleas are in the subgenus Pentanthera and deciduous azaleas are in the subgenus Tsutsutsi. Azalea flowers generally have five stamens, and rhododendrons 10 or more. Azalea leaves exhibit hairs parallel to the leaf surface, usually along the midrib on the underside of the leaf, and tend to be thinner, softer and more pointed than rhododendron leaves. Azaleas flower along the sides of the stems, as well as at their ends, while rhododendrons usually flower only at the ends.
According to the Azalea Society of America, azaleas have been hybridized for hundreds of years, with almost 10,000 different varieties having been named since that time. The different varieties of azaleas are classified as being... Feb 1, 2020
