One of the first signs that spring is on its way is when the Azaleas begin to grace us with their stunning blooms.  Erupting in spectacular colours, they herald the arrival of spring. Azaleas that are botanically known as Rhododendron are a favourite in gardens both big and small due to their versatile nature. They come in different shapes and sizes and range from miniature Azaleas, which only reach 30cm in height, with larger varieties growing up to 2m tall. The biggest conundrum with Azaleas lies in deciding which colour to choose, as they come in a stunning range of colours. With a colour palette consisting of white, pink, red, purple and a riot of colours in between. With all these lovely attributes in mind, let’s have a look at the where and how of Azaleas.
