The azalea attracts much attention with its bold and full blooming form.

This flowering shrub has a woody base and can grow as high as 5 feet. More likely, it will spread out and grow into a colorful and hearty plant.

Azaleas can bloom almost anytime between March and September depending on their location, but will flower all at once for a two to four week duration.

Their blooms can be many colors; the most popular being pink, purple, and red.
