I'm bright azure, but
Ne'er was planted here, nor have
My roots grown attached.

This is very good! A flower that never actually feels secure where it is. You did a great job of describing the term "wallflower" while also adding metaphor. I love this haiku =)

I like that interpretation! I can see where you're coming from, with the bright azure. Originally I intended it to allude to how bright flowers are usually the centerpiece, but that does work really well, too! *steals that interpretation*

Sometimes i struggle to find what a poem is talking about, and this is one of those times...the way I read it, its about maintaining a cheery front even though you haven't really found your place yet...if that's true, I love the roots metaphor!
