Azaleas ~ Day 165

An Azalea bush, is a popular flowering bush and foundation plant, with bright spring blooms. They do not bloom for long but are showy the short time they are in your garden.

Azaleas bushes are members of the Rhododendron family. The biggest difference between the Rhododendron plant and an Azalea plant, is the Azalea is a deciduous bush. It sheds its leaves in the fall. The Rhododendron plant is an evergreen. It stays green year round, unlike the Azalea. In general, an Azalea bush is smaller in height, leaves, and blooms. I prefer evergreens but I have a few annuals that show themselves for a short time. The pink is my favorite color.

Most varieties of Azaleas grow two to eight feet tall. Fragrant blooms put on a show in the spring in white, lavender, bright orange, gold, red and purple colors. Smaller in size, Azaleas are poplar potted plants as gifts for Easter and Mother’s Day.

  1. I wasn’t quite sure how far “your world” extended. They don’t grow in my neighborhood that I know of, but I have seen many of them when I was vacationing in the Pacific Northwest. It could also be that I have seen them and not known what they were. I remember visiting a friend in Southern California in the Los Angeles area who was growing them.
