(Mehlquist Hybrid Rhododendron)

Renowned for their exceptional cold hardiness, their dense compact habit, and their showy, often early-season flowers, these hybrids were developed by Gustav Mehlquist of the University of Connecticut. Many have the beautiful R. degronianum var. yakushimanum in their ancestry. Mehlquist Hybrids bear wide-flaring funnel-shaped flowers in large rounded trusses in spring. The red, pink, purple, or white flowers often have a contrasting blotch on their upper lobes. These dense...

(Mezitt Hybrid Rhododendron)

Developers of the renowned PJM Hybrids, Peter J. Mezitt and his son Edmund V. Mezitt of Weston Nurseries in Hopkinton, Massachusetts, also introduced other valuable small-leaved rhododendrons for gardeners in cold climes. Prized for their early bloom, compactness, exceptional cold-hardiness, and handsome evergreen leaves, these dense upright shrubs bear showy clusters of pink, purple, or white flowers in early spring. The glossy dark green leaves turn bronzy-purple in cold weather and are fragrant...

(Evergreen Azalea, Martha Hitchcock Azalea, Morrison Hybrid Azalea)

Originator of most of the Glenn Dale Hybrids, B. Y. Morrison continued developing evergreen azalea hybrids following his retirement from the United States Department of Agriculture and his subsequent move from Maryland to Pass Christian, Mississippi. There he bred and selected numerous cultivars that exhibited exceptional ornamental characteristics and heat tolerance. Known as the Back Acres Hybrids, these cultivars bear funnel-shaped single, double, or semi-double flowers in a wide spectrum of colors....

(Bristow Hybrid Evergreen Azalea)

Developed for greenhouse forcing by Owen R. Bristow of San Bernadino, California, and introduced by Mossholder Nursery of Costa Mesa, California, these evergreen azaleas result from crosses among Belgian Indica, Rutherford, and other hybrid azaleas. Also known as the Gold Cup Azaleas, they bear showy clusters of large pink, red, or white flowers from later winter into early spring. They may bloom from late fall to spring in frost-free areas. The flaring, funnel-shaped single or semi-double flowers...

(Nearing Hybrid Rhododendron)

Guy Nearing of New Jersey developed numerous outstanding rhododendron cultivars over several decades of hybridizing. Nearing Hybrids are noted for their hardiness, adaptability, excellent habit, and showy spring flowers. Although compact small-leaved cultivars such as 'Ramapo' and 'Windbeam' are the best known of the Nearing Hybrids, they also include many meritorious large-leaved rhododendrons, among them 'Mountain Aura' and 'Haag's Choice'. Like most rhododendrons, Nearing Hybrids typically...

(Deciduous Azalea)

Valued for their extreme hardiness and their colorful spring blooms, the Northern Lights Series is a group of hybrid deciduous azaleas developed by the University of Minnesota. The yellow, orange, pink, purple, or white funnel-shaped flowers appear in dense trusses from mid- to late spring. The petals are often ruffled and curled at their margins. Many cultivars in the series have fragrant flowers. Most Northern Lights azaleas form compact rounded shrubs with oval olive-green leaves that are slightly...

(Nuccio Hybrid Azalea)

Since the 1930s, Julius and Joe Nuccio of Altadena, California, have bred and introduced numerous evergreen hybrid azaleas of diverse lineage and characteristics. Many were developed for greenhouse forcing, but all are also lovely in the landscape, particularly in mild climates.

These evergreen shrubs are grown for their showy spring blooms. The leaves are often dark green and hairy. Flowers are usually broadly funnel-shaped and ruffled and are borne in clusters near the ends of the branches....

(Pericat Hybrid Azalea)

Comprising more than 40 named cultivars, the Pericat hybrid azaleas likely have Kurume and Belgian Indica hybrids in their lineage. Developed for greenhouse growing by Alphonse Pericat of Collingdale, Pennsylvania, they are noted for their showy spring flowers – which are typically larger than those of Kurume azaleas – and for their compact rounded form. The broadly funnel-shaped single, semi-double, or double blooms are usually red or pink and are sometimes ruffled. The small elliptic or lance-shaped...

(Phipps Hybrid Rhododendron)

Known especially for his work with Dexter Hybrids, Howard Phipps of Westbury, New York, developed numerous hardy large-leaved rhododendron hybrids. They bear showy rounded clusters of wide-flaring funnel-shaped flowers in spring. The red, pink, purple, yellow, or white blooms often have a contrasting blotch on their upper lobe. The typically medium-sized plants have large leaves that are often glossy dark green. Among the best-known of these hybrids is 'Wheatley', with fragrant rose-pink blooms. Like...

(Hybrid Rhododendron)

Long cultivated in China and Japan, 'Phoeniceum' and its related cultivars (including 'Maxwellii', 'Smithii', and 'Omurasaki') are tender evergreen azaleas of possible Rhododendron scabrum ancestry. All bear few-flowered clusters of bright purple, funnel-shaped flowers in spring, and form medium-sized, rounded shrubs with hairy twigs and small oval leaves.

Phoeniceum azaleas prefer partial shade and highly organic acid soil that is evenly moist but well-drained. Plant them shallowly...
