azaleasReferred to as “the Royalty of the Garden,” Azaleas are very popular due to their variance in color, which includes all shades of pinks, purples, reds, oranges, whites and more. They can quite easily take over one’s outdoor garden as they bloom quickly and the flowers are rather large. Azaleas are considered easy to grow indoors or out and may bloom in Spring and again in the Summer, which makes them extremely popular for any occasion. ProPlants offers many types of the lovely flowering plant, Azalea.
