A collection of three stunning Japanese azaleas to give you vibrant blooms in spring and year-round, evergreen foliage interest.
Contrasting with the gorgeous flowers, the evergreen leaves are glossy green and provide a good foil for other plants such as colourful perennials – giving another layer of planting to your garden.
Growing to around 100cm (40in) high and wide, depending on variety, rhododendrons (Japanese azaleas) are ideally suited to container growing, and this will also help to keep them compact and easy to maintain.
Perfect for providing masses of colour in early spring, azaleas thrive in partial shade and moist, acidic soil, so incorporate plenty of ericaceous compost to the planting hole or container when planting.
