Azaleas and Rhododendrons

We have a large assortment of Rhododendrons and Azaleas to choose, from small bushes to very tall plants.  It’s important to consider the final size of the plant in addition to the color and the blooming period.  Some bloom in early spring, some later and a few even bloom all summer.  They love acidic soil, most are evergreen.  They are perfect for foundation plantings under windows and for areas under large shade trees.
