About the Family

Japanese Azaleas, originating from the mist-shrouded landscapes of Eastern Asia, bring a touch of botanical magic to gardens. As valued members of the Rhododendron family, they unfold a dazzling array of blooms that transform outdoor spaces into vibrant canvases.

Thriving in well-drained, acidic soils reminiscent of their native habitats, these azaleas prefer the gentle embrace of partial shade. They gracefully inhabit gardens with filtered sunlight, flourishing in woodland settings or enhancing containers with their vibrant hues.

Prudent post-flowering pruning encourages their colourful encore, reaffirming the enduring allure of Japanese Azaleas in the ever-changing story of the garden.

Propagation is by semi ripe cuttings and layering, ensuring the perpetuation of their delicate beauty.
