Azalea plants combine colorful blooms and evergreen leaves to make a beautiful statement plant for your home. Azaleas come in a variety of hues, from deep jewel tones to pastel pinks and bright whites. Their tight buds give you a peek at the colors to come, and as they grow, the buds peel open to reveal beautiful 1"-2" ruffled flowers.
Place azaleas in a location which receives indirect sunlight. Keep the soil evenly moist at all times, but never waterlogged. Provide well-drained, humus-rich soil that is slightly acidic (pH 4.5–6). Prune off spent flowers to encourage more blooms and keep your plant looking its best. Hardiness zones range from 6-9.
