(Hager Hybrid Rhododendron)
Kurume, Glenn Dale, Gable, Satsuki, and other hybrids all contributed to these evergreen azaleas developed by Don Hager of Spotsylvania, Virginia. They bear red, orange, purple, pink, or white flowers in spring on dense compact plants set with attractive foliage. The funnel-shaped flowers are typically single, although semi-double and double cultivars also occur.
Hager azaleas prefer partial shade and highly organic acid soil that is evenly moist but well-drained. Plant them shallowly and...
Bearing showy clusters of pink and white flowers from early to mid spring, this offspring of the Glenn Dale Hybrids 'Mother of Pearl' and 'Mandarin' is one of many evergreen azaleas developed by Don Hager of Spotsylvania, Virginia. The wide-flaring funnel-shaped blooms are hose-in-hose (with two superimposed whorls of petals). The habit is dense and compact.

(Bobbink-Atkins Hybrid Azalea)
Developed in the 1940s by Bobbink and Atkins Nursery of East Rutherford, New Jersey, these evergreen azaleas are the result of crosses between Kaempferi and Kurume hybrids and the Japanese native Rhododendron indicum.

Greenwood Hybrids bear clusters of funnel-shaped flowers on dense compact plants in spring. The funnel-shaped, often ruffled flowers come in a wide range of colors and may be single, semi-double, double, or hose-in-hose (with two superimposed sets...
Bright rose-salmon flowers cover this compact upright evergreen azalea in mid-spring. The unscented semi-double blooms of 'Orange Cup' are accented with red speckles on their upper lobes. The hairy oval leaves are glossy dark green. This cultivar slowly forms a rounded medium-sized shrub.
The Kurume Hybrids result from some 300 years of hybridizing in Japan. Their ancestry likely includes Rhododendron kaempferi, R. kiusianum, and other Japanese species and hybrids....
Bearing showy clusters of large rose-pink flowers in mid-spring, 'Pearl Bradford' is one of the more than 400 evergreen azalea hybrids developed from the late 1920s through the 1940s at the United States Department of Agriculture’s Plant Introduction Station at Glenn Dale, Maryland. The broadly funnel shaped flowers have red-flecked throats.
Growing slowly into a low mounded shrub, this densely branched cultivar has oval shiny dark green leaves. The flowers are held on strong stems and drop...
(Evergreen Azalea, Pericat Hybrid Azalea, Sweetheart Supreme Azalea)
Bright purple-pink flowers with sparsely red-flecked upper lobes adorn this Pericat azalea from mid- to late spring. The funnel-shaped blooms are borne in few-flowered clusters. This rounded chest-high shrub has small elliptic medium- to dark green leaves which may assume coppery hues in cold weather.
