Deciduous Azalea Hybrids – spectacular flowering shrubs

To most of us, evergreen azaleas are well known – they tend to be medium-sized, compact, spring flowering shrubs that look great in containers and when in flower can be spectacular in smaller gardens as a focal point or in mixed borders in larger gardens.
