Azaleas are a deciduous flowering shrub that are classified as rhododendrons. Although they are typically smaller than rhododendrons, these bushes typically have bright flowers that grow in clusters, and are often very fragrant. The most common flower colors are shades of red, pink and white. Plant Addicts has a very large selection of azaleas for sale.
Azaleas are great in southern gardens, but can be grown from zones 6 to 10. We love growing azaleas in planters. We made a guide to growing azaleas in planters to help other gardeners do the same. The plants like well drained soil, with mulch to help protect the shallow roots and keep moisture in the dirt. Most azaleas like full sun, but can tolerate partial shade.
