Azalea (Rhododendron) Millennium is a medium-sized, upright, late-flowering deciduous shrub. It is popular for its extremely fragrant, funnel-shaped, deep pink to dusty red flowers that bloom in late May or June. Blooming lasts for 3-4 weeks which is long for azalea. Its leaves are small, oval, semi-glossy, blue-green with silvery undersides. Millennium Azalea thrives in damp soil and plenty of sun. It prefers moist, acidic, well-drained soils, but it is tolerant to wet soils, even those with poor drainage. It can even withstand periodic flooding. It likes full sun or dappled shade. It needs protection from strong winter winds. Azalea (Rhododendron) Millennium is a beautiful, fragrant landscape plant. Perfect for mixed borders, shrub borders, hedges, and for growing in containers. It’s important to know that all types and all parts of azalea bushes are considered poisonous. Azalea (Rhododendron) Millennium is a hybrid bred by E.V.Mezitt in Massachusetts, USA, in 1973.

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).
