May Reach Peak Soon WILMINGTON .--(£»)-- Stirred to life by the second warmest January in Wilmington's history, the more than a million azalea plants in the city and vicinity are beginning to bloom in earnest with the livelihood that their vari-colored beauty will prevail for many weeks. 'Already many of the earlier varieties have put out their color approximately a month ahead of the usual blooming time. Because of the weather factor involved, horticulturists are unable to predict the date of the peak blooming season. Practically all the late varieties are still in the tight bud stage and some gardeners believe their blooming is about two weeks or more away. Kenneth Sprunt, manager of the 225-year-old Orton Plantation and its gardens, said the azalea season should be the most successful one with a longer blooming period than usual, unless severe cold weather is experienced. In that event, damage to the flowers would be extensive, he added. Horace Corbett, speaking for the owners of Airlie estate, also reported .many of the azaleas were in bloom there but when they will reach their greatest beauty will be hard to forecast, he said. Greenfield Park and Lake, bordered by tens of thousands of plants, also' putting on its seasonal color but, according to city manager J. R. Benson, · was still some days from its height of flo-. ral beauty. City parks and recreation director Arnold Peterson said todav Miss Shirley P. S.
