Azalea Japonica is a small to medium-sized, compact, bushy, evergreen shrub with leathery, ovate, medium-green leaves and clusters of attractive, fragrant, funnel-shaped white, red, pink, or purple flowers blooming in spring and early summer. Attractive to birds and butterflies. Azalea Japonica prefers fertile, humus-rich, acidic soils. It has shallow roots so it needs constantly moist, but very well-drained soils, otherwise it can suffer from root rot. It thrives in partial shade to full sun, but full sun may cause leaf scorch. It is resistant to frost, but needs to be sheltered form harsh, winter winds. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require pruning. Japanese Azalea is a beautiful, floriferous, evergreen shrub, easy to grow and maintain. It is perfect for banks and slopes, shrub borders and mixed borders, low informal hedges and screens, and foundational plantings. It is excellent for informal, cottage, and wildlife gardens. Because of its shallow roots, very suitable for growing in pots and containers.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
