(Indian Hybrid Azalea)

Hybrids that have the East Asian species Rhododendron simsii, Rhododendron indicum, and Rhododendron murconatum in their ancestry, these evergreen azaleas were first developed in the nineteenth century for greenhouse forcing, but they also perform well in the landscape in areas where winters are moderate.

These shrubs are grown for their large long-lasting early- to mid-spring flowers on rounded compact plants. The unscented, funnel-shaped, ruffled blooms are borne...

(Kiusianum Hybrid Azalea)

Kiusianum Hybrid Rhododendron parentage traces back many centuries to southern Japan where it was found growing in open woodlands and high altitude hillsides, specifically on the Island of Kyushu. It is best described as a dwarf evergreen to semi-evergreen shrub with a dense spreading habit. Flowers are red, white, purple and typically pink. Kiusianum prefers partial sun to shade and soil rich with organic matter. Plant in traditional Japanese gardens, rock gardens or in a Rhododendron collection....

(Knap Hill Hybrid Azalea)

The deciduous Knap Hill hybrid azaleas were originally developed by Anthony Waterer at the famed Knap Hill Nursery in England around 1860. The complex hybrids were bred with species from the United States and China. They are noted for usually fragrant, large, mid or late season blooms in a wide range of colors. The plants are medium to tall in height, very hardy, vigorous in growth and easily propagated.

Deciduous azaleas generally have upright, rounded habits. The leaves are dark green and...

(Kurume Hybrid Azalea)

Compact, evergreen azaleas offering an abundance of brightly colored spring blooms, 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. This group includes hundreds of cultivars, only a fraction of which are commonly available. They were introduced to the West in 1920 by renowned plantsman E.H. Wilson.

These popular evergreen shrubs are...

(Larson Hybrid Rhododendron, Rhododendron)

H. L. Larson of Tacoma, Washington, developed numerous rhododendron hybrids that are well adapted to the coastal Northwest United States as well as to other areas with relatively mild summers and winters. Most are compact, and many have the beautiful R. degronianum var. yakushimanum in their ancestry. They bear wide-flaring funnel-shaped flowers in large rounded trusses in spring. The red, orange, yellow, pink, purple, or white blooms often have a contrasting blotch on...

(Lee Hybrid Rhododendron)

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...

(Linwood Hardy Rhododendron)

This diverse group of dwarf evergreen azaleas was developed by G. Albert Reed and Dr. Charles Fischer, Jr., of Linwood, New Jersey. Intended for both greenhouse and garden use, Linwood azaleas include Kurume, Kaempferi, and other hybrid groups in their lineage. Their broadly funnel-shaped blooms are red, orange, yellow, purple, pink, or white, often with a contrasting blotch. Most are double or semi-double and hose-in-hose (with "stacked" whorls of petals). The dense, typically dwarf plants have...

(Mayo Hybrid Rhododendron)

Developed by R. P. Mayo of Augusta, Georgia, these evergreen azaleas are the result of crosses between Kurume hybrids and varieties and hybrids of the Japanese natives Rhododendron indicum and R. kaempferi. They bear clusters of funnel-shaped red, pink, orange, purple, or white flowers on dense upright medium-sized to tall plants in spring. The funnel-shaped, often ruffled flowers are single or hose-in-hose (with two superimposed sets of petals).

These somewhat cold-tender...

(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...
