Garden Alphabet: Azalea

I hadn’t experienced azalea much until I moved her to California. Then, of course, I inherited a garden full of them. They are reliable, relatively maintenance free perennials that put on a good flower show every year. They also come in a variety of colors, so gardeners have a good choice of how to fit them into their own garden schemes.

Azalea

“Azaleas (pron.: /əˈzeɪliə/) are flowering shrubs comprising two of the eight subgenera of the genus Rhododendron, Tsutsuji (evergreen) and Pentanthera (deciduous). Azaleas bloom in spring in the Northern hemisphere and in winter in the Southern hemisphere, their flowers often lasting several weeks. Shade tolerant, they prefer living near or under trees.” — Wikipedia.org
