(Compact Korean Azalea, Korean Azalea)

Korean azalea is a low, dense, broad-growing, semi-evergreen shrub native to open grassy slopes in Korea. It bears small clusters of rose-pink to lavender-violet, fragrant, funnel-shaped flowers in early to mid-spring. The narrow, dark green-leaves turn vibrant shades of orange to red-purple in fall.

Gardeners prefer to plant the Korean azalea in full sun to partially shaded locations in a well-drained soil rich in organic matter. It works well in a woodland garden, mixed border or on an embankment....

(Early Azalea, Roseshell Azalea)

The scent of cloves lifts from the pink blossoms of the Mayflower azalea in mid- to late spring as the new leaves emerge. This native of open woodlands, it hails from southern Quebec southward to Oklahoma and Virginia. Usually a rounded shrub in habit, this deciduous shrub can be quite variable in its mature shape and form. Full sun exposures produce the most compact, densest plants. Its excellent cold hardiness finds it a parent to the Northern Lights hybrid azaleas.

Fuzzy green leaves unfurl...

(Pretty Azalea, Pretty Rhododendron, Purple Azalea)

What better word than simple pretty to describe the springtime's fuchsia flowers on the pretty rhododendron? Not known to exist in the wild, often this species is listed as native to China although a man-made hybrid of Rhododendron indicum and Rhododendron ledifolium. New leaves emerge in spring to make a dense mass of kelly green. Then fuchsia or violet-rose flowers with red flecks appear in mid- to late spring. Each truss has one to five flowers that are broadly opening funnels....

(Royal Azalea)

Terrific in plant habit, late spring flowers and autumn color, royal azalea warrants inclusion in all gardens. Hailing from northeatern China and the Korean Peninsula, this deciduous shrub is many branches and forms a pleasant domed silhouette.

Just as the leaves emerge in late spring, clusters of three to six delicate pink blossoms don branch tips, releasing a sweet aroma. The deep green foliage clothes the plant across summer, being oval with textured veins. Then in autumn the leaves develop...

Indian azalea is a medium-sized, dense, spreading, tender evergreen or semi-evergreen shrub native to China and Taiwan. In spring it bears clusters of large, red, funnel-shaped flowers with deep red spots.

Like other azaleas it grows best in filtered shade and moist, well-drained soil, although it is relatively tolerant of sun and drought. It is a parent of the Indica hybrid azaleas, which are popular in warmer climates as garden plants and in colder areas as seasonal potted plants.

The beautiful pink blooms of Rhododendron vaseyi are one of the highlights of spring in its native western North Carolina. This deciduous azalea bears wide-flaring, funnel-shaped flowers with very short tubes. They cluster at or near the ends of the branches from early to mid-spring, before the leaves expand. The dark pink to white blooms often have contrasting steaks or speckles at the bases of their upper lobes. Open, irregularly upright plants bear medium green, slightly hairy, narrowly...

(Yak Rhododendron, Yakushima Rhododendron)

Here is one of the most lovely and visually interesting rhododendrons! Not only are the leaves glossy with brown undersides, the flowers in spring are a blend of white and pink like a melting swirl of a strawberry sundae. A compact, tightly foliaged broadleaf evergreen shrub from Japan, the Yak rhododendron is endemic to the island of Yakushima, just south of Kyusyu. Here it grows on mountain slopes alongside laurels and Japanese cedars.

Glossy dark green leaves first emerge covered in a pale...

(Fragrant Sumac)

Fragrant sumac is a deciduous low, broad-spreading shrub whose branches turn up at the tips. Its fuzzy stems are fragrant when bruised and three-parted green leaves turn vivid shades of orange, yellow and red in fall. Small yellow flowers in spring give rise to dry red fruits in the fall, which attract birds. The cultivar 'Gro-Low' is a popular dwarf form of this dense shrub. Native to eastern North America, this fast growing, drought tolerant plant can be used as a ground cover or to hold steep...
