Evergreen Azalea Plants
The hardy evergreen and semi evergreen azalea species have a huge number of hybrids. Most of these have originated in Japan, where EH Wilson introduced the beautiful kurume azalea hybrids.
In a woodland glade or semi shaded garden, close plantings of dwarf, evergreen Kurume Azaleas create a spectacular effect.
Evergreen azalea plants will thrive in full sun so long as their roots are kep moist, but partial shade is recommended, as is shelter from strong winds.
Average height for this group of azaleas is normally around 0.6 to 1.2m.
Within the evergreen azalea group, there are other noteworthy groups as described below.
