See a breathtaking display of floral color and beauty when you drive Lafayette’s Historic Azalea Trail–celebrate more than 80 years of this amazing springtime attraction! The azalea bloom season signals the start of spring with a “flower power” show of beauty during the month of March.
Lafayette, Louisiana’s historic azalea trail began in the 1930’s in Elmhurst Park Subdivision on Dunreath Street, which became known as the “Million Dollar Road” of azaleas. February 23, 1938 was declared the first official opening date of bloom season for the trail. The Fuchsia Formosa azalea was named “The General Lafayette” as the city flower and can be seen in grandeur on Mall Boulevard in Mouton Gardens. Around the Visitor’s Center pond, one can view Lafayette’s most popular varieties of azaleas.
In 2015, Scenic Lafayette began extensive revitalization of the trail. 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.
Along the trail visit Lafayette’s cultural attractions, historic properties, garden neighborhoods, shops, and restaurants. Off the trail, explore the azalea viewing spots around the city to enjoy this springtime floral splendor of color.
