|Lore||Azaleas are among the few blooming plants found in the traditional Japanese tea garden, and the earliest known hybrids originated in Japan. All azaleas are actually classified under genus Rhododendron, but share their own distinct taxonomical grouping.|
|Average Size at Maturity||Grows to 3 to 3 1/2 ft. tall, 3 ft. wide.|
|Design Ideas||A perfectly sized azalea for high profile foundation planting. Attention getter at close range around outdoor living areas or to liven up dull shrub borders. Create irregular groups in sheltered locations around tree groves and in acidic soils in conjunction with conifers. Superior choice for both Chinese and Japanese inspired gardens.|
