(Ghent Hybrid Azalea)

The enormous genus Rhododendron comprises more than a thousand species. They are naturally distributed on every continent except Antarctica, Africa and South America. The highest concentrations of species occur in the temperate and mountainous regions of China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan. Grown for their showy flowers, rhododendrons are garden favorites worldwide and have been highly hybridized. There are more than 28,000 registered cultivars.

Plants in this genus are extremely variable...

(Girard Hybrid Azalea)

Renowned for their cold hardiness, these compact evergreen azaleas were bred at the Ohio-based Girard Nursery. They are also noted for large blooms on compact disease-resistant plants.

In spring, they put forth large, often ruffled flowers that can be red, pink, fuchsia, salmon, white or yellow. The abundant, usually funnel-shaped flowers cluster near the ends of the branches. The flowers are single, double, semi-double or hose-in-hose (two "stacked" sets of petals). Their small oval glossy...

(Glenn Dale Hybrid Azalea)

Comprising more than 400 cultivars, the Glenn Dale hybrid azaleas were developed from the late 1920s through the 1940s at the United States Department of Agriculture’s Plant Introduction Station at Glenn Dale, Maryland. This breeding program was initiated by Benjamin Y. Morrison, the first director of the United States National Arboretum. These relatively cold-hardy evergreen azaleas are complex hybrids involving many Asian and North American rhododendrons.

These small to medium-sized shrubs...

(Greenwood Hybrid Rhododendron)

Bred to thrive in the mild climate of the coastal Pacific Northwest United States, these evergreen azaleas were developed after 1960 by Bill Guttormsen of Canby, Oregon, They are the result of crosses between Gable, Glenn Dale, Kurume, and other hybrids. 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...

(Hachmann Hybrid Rhododendron)

Since 1951, Hans Hachmann and his son Holger have produced hundreds of outstanding rhododendron hybrids at their family nursery in Barmstedt, Germany. The product of more than 5000 crosses, Hachmann Hybrid rhododendrons are known for their cold-hardiness, prolific and colorful bloom, handsome evergreen foliage, and dense compact habit. The wide-flaring funnel-shaped flowers are borne in large rounded trusses in spring. The red, yellow, orange, purple, or white blooms often have a contrasting blotch...

(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...

(Hardijzer Hybrid Rhododendron)

A group of hybrids between azalea cultivars and the small-leaved rhododendron R. racemosum, these "azaleodendrons" were developed by W. H. Hardijzer of Boskoop, Holland, in the 1950s and 1960s. These vigorous compact evergreen shrubs bear abundant clusters of small funnel-shaped blooms in early to mid-spring. The dense mounded plants have small, dark green leaves, which sometimes take on a reddish tinge.

Like most rhododendrons, Hardijzer Hybrids typically favor cool winters,...

(Hines Hybrid Azaleas)

Introduced by Hines Nursery of Irvine, California, these tender evergreen azaleas result from crosses among Belgian Indica Hybrids and other hybrid azaleas. They were selected for their compact rounded habit and their profusion of large funnel-shaped flowers from later winter into early spring. The clustered single, semi-double, or double flowers are sometimes fragrant. Flower colors include pink, purple, and rose. The small hairy lance-shaped leaves are glossy-green. Although developed partly for...

(Hobbie Hybrid Rhododendron)

Starting in 1939, Dietrich Hobbie of Linswege, Germany, developed and introduced a diversity of rhododendron hybrids involving more than 600 crosses. They bear showy clusters of wide-flaring funnel-shaped flowers in spring. The red, orange, pink, purple, lavender, or white flowers often have a contrasting blotch on their upper lobes. Leaf and plant size vary from small to large, although most Hobbie Hybrids are dense and compact. Among the best-known of these hybrids are the dwarf 'Scarlet Wonder'...
