Description

The azalea is a flowering shrub. Blooming in spring, its flowers are at their most beautiful for a span of several weeks. Shade tolerant, they thrive near or under trees. Azaleas are similar in appearance to rhododendrons but are typically smaller and feature one blossom per stem rather than blossom clusters.
