Evergreen/Japanese Azaleas & how to grow them

  • Compact evergreen or semi evergreen. Most are low-growing, tolerant of full exposure, are most of the newer ones are relatively evergreen.
  • Size 20cm to 1m.
  • Flowers purple, red, near orange, pink to white.
  • The Glendoick collection are those most suited to the North of Britain including Scotland. Many evergreen azaleas are totally unsuited to Scotland as it is not hot enough in summer to ripen wood, resulting in subsequent winter damage.
  • The dwarf species R. kiusianum and R. nakaharae (from Taiwan) have been crossed with larger-flowered but less hardy varieties to create selections satisfactory for Scotland, Scandinavia, Germany & other similar climates where summer sun strength is not reliable.
  • The most important hybridisers are Peter & Kenneth Cox (Scotland), & H. Hachmann (Germany).  
  • Evergreen azaleas are subject to azalea gall and petal blight.
