A southern mainstay, Azaleas are a classic flower seen in gardens all over North and South Carolina, Georgia and more. They’re a popular choice because of their incredible floral show in the spring combined with their small, evergreen stature. These flowers do not tolerate heavy, poorly drained soils. Planting is recommended in holes three times the width of the root ball with the root ball situated above grade, or sit an inch or two above the soil level. Remember, many of the traditional azaleas prefer shady areas!
