The Azalea, part of the Rhododendron genus, makes a wonderful addition to most gardens. The plants are easy to grow and have attractive foliage. While evergreen azaleas look sensational year-round, deciduous azaleas provide exquisite fall color and exhibit an appealing woody framework in winter.

Full sun or a minimum of 4 hours of sunlight is required for a healthy plant. They are often considered the flower of the South as they abound in gardens south of the Mason-Dixon line.
