Landscaping with Azalea Bushes
Azaleas are a southern classic for good reason. They grow incredibly well and look great year round. In the spring you are greeted with an explosion of color and fragrance. The healthy plants seem to have as many buds and blooms as they do leaves. All year round the evergreen leaves will add a lush vibe to your yard. Because Chinese azaleas are evergreen, they make wonderful borders, hedges and even privacy screens. The uses for azaleas in the landscape are endless and add a touch of southern charm to any home.
