2023 Plant Sale and Festival Speaker - Charlie Andrews
President of the Azalea Society of America and Editorial Advisory Board of The Azalean
Charlie Andrews has been studying North American azaleas in the field and the literature for over 40 years. He writes and speaks on azalea topics and is currently writing a book on the history and characteristics of this complex group of plants.
Charlie is a retired Georgia Tech engineer, whose life-long hobby of trout fishing introduced him many years ago to native azaleas (often found along North Georgia’s trout streams). This is a subject about which he wants to learn everything possible.
Charlie is the president of the Azalea Society of America and serves on the Editorial Advisory Board of The Azalean, the journal of the Azalea Society. He is an active member and past president of the Azalea Chapter of the American Rhododendron Society.
