The February winter storms have left Lafayette's iconic azalea blooms a little behind schedule.

The Azalea Trail says that because of the winter chill the azaleas are slightly frost bitten in some areas around town.

"As of March 2, 2021 no blooms right now," their website states.

According to the Azalea Trail, official bloom season for the plant is February 23rd through the month of March. They are expecting to see blooms when temperatures warm later this month.

Because of the setback this year, the Azalea Trail Historical Trolley Tours have been rescheduled to Saturday March 13, 2021.
