Azalea Trail of Lafayette :

A springtime attraction since the 1930’s, the Lafayette Historic Azalea Trail is a winding drive through historic districts, downtown, the university and oil center, and neighborhood garden districts with grand boulevards for approximately 25 miles of the city’s urban core.  Mid-century, it was reported that over 40,000 visitors drove the trail each year!  The Southern Indica Lavender Formosa Azalea was christened “The General Lafayette” in the 1950’s as the city flower in honor of the Marquis de Lafayette.In 2015 Scenic Lafayette began extensive revitalization of the azalea trail. Since that time over 1,000 azaleas have been planted thru our partnerships.  In recognition of its continuing efforts and programs for promoting azaleas as valuable landscape shrubs, Lafayette earned the Azalea City Certification in 2016 by the Azalea Society of America.  This cultural floral attraction is a display of such breathtaking floral color and beauty that it cannot be described in words.  Come and enjoy this “flower power” show.   Watch us Bloom!https://azaleatrail.org
