How long lasting are the visible-colour, closed-flower and open-flower stages of flowering in an azalea?

How long lasting are the visible-colour, closed-flower and open-flower stages of flowering in an azalea?

Verbondsnieuws voor de Belgische Sierteelt 26(21): 947-949

Studies were made of the flower development and the lasting quality of individual flowers of several early, mid-season and late evergreen azalea cvs. The time from bursting of the green flower bud scales to the closed-flower stage was 2 weeks for early cvs and 1 week for mid-season and late cvs. The closed-flower stage lasted about a week.
