Azaleas thrive in fertile acidic soil and they are easy to look after once they are established. Give them a generous mulch, between two and four inches deep, each spring to keep the soil moist and the roots cool. You could use pine needles, which help to keep the soil acidic, or top quality shredded bark or, best of all, home-produced leaf litter. Originating from Japan, this azalea variety is known for its lush, glossy green foliage that remains verdant throughout the year. The Japanese evergreen shrub provides a sense of tranquility and adds a touch of exotic beauty to your garden.

It is sometimes placed in a separate genus, Pentanthera, but more often included within Rhododendron as Rhododendron Obtusum. R. Obtusum is most closely related to Rhododendron Metternichii, and like that, the species has occasionally been treated as a member of the separate genus Pentanthera. Japanese Azalea Description:There are many ways to use evergreen shrubs in a garden landscape. Shrubs with dense foliage can be clipped into ornamental shapes or formal boxed hedgerows. Or, strategically planting several shrubs can improve the aesthetic appeal of your front yard. Large-leaved shrubs are excellent for creating an informal garden at your house. Azaleas are acid-loving plants that require a pH of between 5.0 and 6.0. They only thrive in certain areas of the country, often where acid heathland thrives.

As a result most gardeners need to grow them in containers full of ericaceous compost. Use rugged containers, such as oak half barrels or terracotta, and position them away from morning and full midday position so that their early flowers do not get frosted by a sudden thaw caused by sun. Plant shallow – the hole should be twice as wide as it is deep, and don’t bury the crown under the soil. One of the best azaleas for autumn foliage, with dark shiny leaves turning dark red as winter approaches. Large, pink-toned carmine red flowers in May. Height 75-90cm in 10 years. How does a shrub differ from a small tree? Shrubs generally have multiple woody stems that grow from the ground, whereas trees typically have a single trunk. Although some types of trees are short, shrubs are usually small- to medium-sized bushy perennial plants.

Feeding azaleas

Rhododendron luteum - also known as Azalea pontica, this is a bushy, upright shrub with fragrant yellow flowers and good autumn colour. It can be toxic to people and animals but is good for bees that love the nectar rich flowers. Deciduous Azaleas originate from Turkey, America and Asiatic areas such as Japan and Taiwan. The yellow luteum from Turkey is as hardy and as popular as ever with its scented flowers, while the American species are more subtle and extend the flowering season into the summer. The Asiatic species are more delicate in habit and in flower, and all the more beautiful too. Best in partial shade, and perfect at the edge of woodland. Most evergreen azaleas are marketed commercially as shrubs, and this would be an apt description on original planting. In ten-years time though, depending on climatic conditions and the specific cultivar, a small shrub can grow considerably larger and in twenty or thirty years reach the size of a small tree. Kurume azaleas that look so dainty with their small leaf foliage can in time reach a height of ten feet or more. Southern Indian varieties can grow even taller and spread out even farther, so it is necessary to study the size that can be reached in ten years or more to determine just how and where to plant in a landscape. Every hybrid group contains exceptions; not every Satsuki azalea remains low and spreading in growth habit. Boxwood—Evergreen ornamental landscaping shrubs with small oval glossy evergreen leaves – these shrubs grow to medium size. Azalea japonicas can and will struggle if the soil stays dry during the summer months. I have seen this with younger specimens but less so with established ones.

In this picture: Mahonia japonica bush with decorative reddish-purple foliage in winter. The striking broad-leaf, evergreen foliage ensures protection in your garden from wind and noise. A late-flowering Scottish variety for June, with bright-scarlet flowers on a compact plant. Height 40-60cm in 10 years. There are two types of azaleas. Evergreen azaleas, sometimes called Japanese azaleas, are smaller and slower growing, reaching up to 3ft ( up to 90cm) after ten years. Evergreen azaleas are suitable for container growing, due to their size, or smaller gardens. Their small lance-shaped leaves often colour up in autumn. Choose a pot that’s approx 75mm wider than the existing tub. I’ve found that shallower but wider pots are more suitable than the narrower, deeper types, and drainage is essential, so there should be enough holes at the base. Azaleas are a prevalent type of shrub, and Japanese azaleas (Rhododendron Obtusum) are some of the most beautiful. They’re perfect for adding a splash of color to your garden and are relatively easy to care for.
