The Azalea - Rhododendron

Hey everyone!
Figure I share about my lovely Azalea plants. I love the azaleas that we have and they are great to have in the yard. Green all year around but really produce spectacular flowers in the spring, all kinds of colors.
They are a flowering shrub from the Rhododendron genus. Their flowers will last for a few weeks, depending on the weather conditions. They prefer to have shade majority of the day as they look more healthy and produce great looking blooms then. Also love to grow beneath or by other taller trees. They grow one blossom per stem rather then the multiple like the plant Rhododendron. Also, like the Rhododendron's, the azaleas are also mildly poisons and you should not consume any parts or the plant at all as it can cause abdominal pains and cardiovascular problems as well.
