Azaleas & Rhododendrons

Azaleas & Rhododendrons

Rhododendrons (Azaleas are now reclassified as Rhododendrons) are shrubs grown mainly for their spectacular flowers, in a wide range of colours. As a general rule evergreen Rhododendrons usually put on a good show in Spring, whereas the deciduous ones have good late Summer/Autumn colour.  The smaller varieties are ideal in containers grown in loam based, ericaceous compost, the larger ones suitable for the rear of a partially shady border, would be more suitable established in naturally occurring acid conditions.
