Botanical Pronunciationuh-ZAY-lee-uh
LoreThe Indica hybrids are evergreen azaleas best-suited for mild climates. Within the Indica group are Belgian Indica hybrids and Southern Indica hybrids. The Southern Indica hybrids are sometimes referred to as "sun azaleas", meaning they are more tolerant of sun than other azaleas. In extremely hot, arid climates, Southern Indica azaleas appreciate some shelter from prolonged harsh afternoon sun. Morning sun with dappled afternoon shade, or all-day dappled sun is appropriate.
Average Size at MaturityModerate growing 6 to 8 ft. tall and wide.

Design IdeasAdd this six- to eight-foot-tall Azalea to your garden for a burst of lavender on a dark evergreen background. Try planting on either side of a vine-covered arbor to further define the archway.
