AZALEA - EVERGREEN
A botanical section within the genus Rhododendron.
Further divided into subgroups they commonly bear a profusion of small to large trusses of small single, semi-double or frilled, unscented, funnel- or trumpet-shaped flowers.
Well-grown specimens appear as a solid mound of colour and are breathtaking as massed plantings.
