Kurume Azalea - turning Japanese

작년

Azaleas are one of the most popular garden plants, and spring is the time they look their best, with a spectacular flower display. There are thousands of varieties of Azaleas available, ranging from tall growing "Indica" varieties to smaller dwarf varieties. The Kurume Azalea is a small to medium growing-height Azalea. It has compact growth, and small "hose-in-hose" flowers, meaning one flower inside another, sort of like a double flower.

The Kurume Azaleas are available in several colours, including the well known pinks and white varieties. There plants prefer a well drained, slightly acid soil, and a semi-shaded position out of the hot sun. They are best suited to a cool-temperate to warm-temperate climate, and you can plant these Azaleas in pots or in the garden. They are endemic to several asian countries including China and Japan.

I took these photos in Sydney's Northern suburbs where these Azaleas are now in full flower. new7 078.jpg new7 077.jpg

@ctrl-alt-nwo,
I assure you I have never seen this flower and plant in my country! If I see it, I will definitely bring it home! Wow it's wonderful and I like that color of the flowers as well! You said it's available in several colors! I couldn't imagine the beauty if I see all those color plants in one area!
Thanks for sharing such wonderful details with beautiful photography!

Cheers~

Rhododendrons and azaleas are arguably the South’s favorite shrubs. Many people think of them as entirely different plants, but they both belong to the genus Rhododendron, which comprises more than 800 species and 10,000 named selections.

Even to the untrained eye, one difference between the two groups is obvious: rhododendrons generally have much larger leaves. From a technical standpoint, rhododendron flowers are bell shaped and have ten or more stamens, while azalea blooms are typically funnel shaped and have five stamens.

By making their choices carefully, gardeners in almost every part of the South can enjoy some of these plants, even if that means growing them in containers. Rhododendrons generally do better in the Upper and Middle South, though a number of selections thrive in the Lower South.

Azaleas, however, are more accommodating; with the necessary attention to soil, light, and proper selection, they can be grown throughout the South.

Silly Sausage Award ! Great selection of Pics !

Few plants can rival the spectacular floral displays of azaleas. Their vivid colors, profusion of flowers, and adaptability to a wide range of soils and climates make them one of the most popular flowering shrubs in Georgia. Although most people associate azaleas with spring, several bloom in summer and fall. By carefully selecting plants, you can have azaleas blooming at least eight months of the year.

Botanically, azaleas are members of the Ericaceae (Heath) family, which includes blueberries and mountain laurel. All azaleas are rhododendrons, and both are in the genus Rhododendron. The term “rhododendron,” however, is commonly used to refer to the group of plants usually with large, leathery, evergreen foliage, while “azalea” refers to those with smaller, thinner leaves. Generally, azaleas and rhododendrons have the same cultural requirements.

Very beautiful flowers, they somehow resemble sakura, but in the form of tabernacles.

While azaleas are nowhere near as popular as they were some years ago, they’re still hard to beat when it comes to producing a mass of garden colour in winter and spring. Azaleas vary in size from small, rather delicate shrubs that are happiest in pots, to the large, hardy indica varieties that seem able to survive all the climatic challenges that are thrown at them. The latter group includes salmon-pink ‘Splendens’, purple ‘Magnifica’ and white or bicoloured bloomers that can reach up to more than two metres tall.

Most azaleas are at their happiest when grown in semi-shade or morning sun. These woodland plants have evolved to grow in the generations of leaf litter that have built up under forest trees. This type of leaf-mulch-derived soil is naturally acidic, which makes azaleas difficult to grow in soils that are tending towards the alkaline.

Very nice flowers it looks like an artifacial flowers, the colour was too nice for the eyes.

great post sir!

The simple touch of this flower is great how cool and elegant it looks Kurume Azalea its beautiful :)

An Azalea bush, is a popular flowering bush and foundation plant, with bright spring blooms.

Azaleas bushes are members of the Rhododendron family. The biggest difference between the Rhododendron plant and an Azalea plant, is the Azalea is a deciduous bush. It sheds its leaves in the fall. The Rhododendron plant is an evergreen. In general, an Azalea bush is smaller in height, leaves, and blooms.

Most varieties of Azaleas grow two to eight feet tall. Fragrant blooms put on a show in the spring in white, lavender, bright orange, gold, red and purple colors.

Smaller in size, Azaleas are poplar potted plants as gifts for Easter and Mother's Day. After blooms die,transplant azaleas outdoors.

Amazing flower. The birthplace of the flower - Japan, India and China. Plants can not stand the heat and feel comfortable in a cool area, high in the mountains and slums. In the wild there are impassable thickets of azalea shrubs.
The plant quickly won the love of not only experienced flower growers, but also people who never took a great interest in flowers. And who does not like the bright hat of airy butterflies? In different countries, the azalea flower has a certain culture of cultivation: Hindus like meter fluffy bushes, and the Japanese have created a whole direction in the art of bonsai and taught the world to grow amazing trees from rhododendron.
In Asia, azalea is also known as the English rose or pink tree. In Greek, it sounds like “rhododendron”. It is under this second name that this plant is known. But the azalea from the Greek language is translated as “dry”. And there is nothing strange in this: on the dry branches of the plant, flowers first appear and only then leaves open.

Beautiful flowers, my friend and luminous cerise pink open flowers cover this compact evergreen shrub during spring and summer. Ideal container plant for patio settings and smaller gardens.

DESCRIPTION: Cerise coloured semi double blooms with gently ruffled edges. Small-medium rounded evergreen shrub.
USE IN: Beautiful in groups as a mass display of flowering colour. Suitable for pots.
LOCATION: Azaleas love dappled, morning and/or afternoon sun. A full sun location may be ok but not too exposed, hot and dry. Plant in a free draining soil rich in organic matter.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: approx 1m H x 1m W.
CARE: Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. Continue to water on a regular basis for the first twelve months to ensure the plant becomes fully established. Prune after spring flowering to promote dense growth and flowering next season, fertilise using a slow release fertiliser such as Osmocote which is specially formulated for azaleas.
YOUR PLANTS: These plants are tube-stock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The average size of your plants will be 15 -25 cm including the pot height of 80mm high and 42 mm wide.

Thank you @ctrl-alt-nwo

A source of information: http://www.australianplantsonline.com.au/azalea-kurume-only-one-earth.html

The flowers are usually tubular-, funnel-, or bell-shaped—and often fragrant. The leaves of the smaller azalea are usually pointed and narrow; the leaves of the rhododendron are generally large and leathery.

These shrubs prefer climates with adequate rainfall and moist summers. The two main azalea groups, evergreen and deciduous (varieties that drop their leaves in the fall) can be found in nearly every part of North America, from the frosty Canadian plains to tropical Florida. The rhododendron types are fussier, preferring environments where it is neither too hot nor too cold (Zones 5 to 8). They need a certain amount of chilling to develop strong flower buds.

With thousands of varieties, there are rhododendrons and azaleas for just about every landscape situation. There are low-growing ground cover azaleas, plants that grow from 1 to 2 feet, as well as plants that can grow up to 25 feet tall. They come in many flower colors, including pink, red, white, yellow, and purple. Though most plants flower in the spring, there are also summer-blooming varieties that add color and charm to the garden.

Azalea, a beautiful flower name isn't it? As an interest lover, my curiosity about this one flower is so great. Ornamental plants are not the only Azalaea flowers with extraordinary beauty Azalea even grows simply, but behind its simplicity is able to give a cool and peaceful feel Azalea is a flower that is popular in the United States, there is even Only to this beautiful flower. This flower ornamental plant was first grown in China and Japan, while its own name comes from the Greek azaleos which means "dry", referring to the reference that grows easily on dry, light soil (you can read how to plant azaleas here) What's interesting about the azalea flower is that it is flowering shrub, so even if it doesn't flower, it will still grow beautifully with its lush leaves. Azalea belongs to the Rhododendron family, which means that it is a type of flower that grows thickly. There are various interesting colors of azalea flowers, namely red, yellow, purple, pink to white.

I think you have already written about Azaleas. But it was different color as I remember. They look lovely as they give vivid energy to soroundings - house, garden, park, etc.

My mother used to grow these in our backyard growing up in up-state NY. A suburb outside of Albany. Sad to say she is no longer with us, but I have great memories of helping her in the garden one of her favorite places to be. Another great share! Thank you!

On another note I hope you don't mind........

I'm trying really hard to get a community writing project off the ground. It's basically going to be a travel pro report library for steemit and hopefully the online world at large with any success; a resource of information for destinations around the world. I'm collaborating with other travelers (travel pros) on steemit encouraging them to write reports with a specific format to keep the quality and style in sync. The reports/library can be found at @travel-report.

I just wrote the first one to get things kicked off. It's on Chiang Mai Thailand, one of my favorite destinations in the world for many reasons.

Any support you can lend is greatly appreciated and will encourage others to write reports too really giving some lift to this project.

Thank you so much,

From Odessa Ukraine -Dan

I have not travelled for ages, but i'll have a look at it, but no promises.

Beautiful plant @ctrl-alt-nwo! Azaleas can give months of flowering pleasure from winter to summer, but as with most plants, the best results require a little bit of attention. Watering should be done on demand and the plants kept moist, but be careful not to overdo it, especially in autumn and winter as azaleas need less water as the weather cools. Never water over the buds or flowers as this can cause fungal problems that result in a shorter flowering at best, and no flowering at worst.

Although Autumn conditions are not as conducive to "petal blight" as are the warm days of late Spring, it may be necessary to use Zayleton to control these problems if they occur at any time. Generally though, if overhead watering and torrential rain are avoided (Good luck with the latter), and dead flowers are picked off from time to time (put them in the bin not the garden), there is nothing to stop a wonderful display for many spring weeks, providing conditions remain fine.

As far as fertilising of Azaleas (and for that matter most plants) is concerned, monthly applications of Harvest or a Fertiliser for acid loving plants, as well as a measure of Osmocote, Organic Life or Cow manure every three or four months, should be all that's required to keep your plant in good shape. Remember not to use granular chemical fertilisers on azaleas in Autumn and Winter as you may destroy the Spring flowers. "Azalea & Camellia food" can be used after flowering to encourage new growth, but only sparingly on established plants in the ground, and never on plants in pots!

A source: http://www.honeysucklegarden.com.au/new-page-2/

There are two distinct types of Azaleas. Evergreen Azaleas, (sometimes called Japanese azaleas) keep their leaves in winter, and typically grow to 40-80cm (18"-30") in 10 years. Deciduous Azaleas are taller, reaching 120-150cm (4'-5') in 10 years, and lose their leaves in the autumn, often with some wonderful colours first. Both are members of the Rhododendron family.miyagino21.jpg
Deciduous Azaleas originate from Turkey, America and Asiatic areas such as Japan and Taiwan. The yellow luteum from Turkey is as hardy and as popular as ever with its scented flowers, while the American species are more subtle and extend the flowering season into the summer. The Asiatic species are more delicate in habit and in flower, and all the more beautiful too. Best in partial shade, and perfect at the edge of woodland.5_header.jpg
azalea-flowering-10312015.jpg
The plant collector E H Wilson introduced his famous Wilson’s 50 Evergreen Azaleas in 1920 having selected the best 50 Kurume azaleas from Japan. Since then, numerous hybrids have been bred around the world, some them not hardy enough for British conditions. We have selected good performers for a spectacular show every May.tokonatsu21.jpgisabella.jpg

@ctrl-alt-nwo, Awesome, and in my opinion in Spring season we see the Enhancement of beauty of nature and it really great to explore for sure and good to know that Azaleas look great in Spring season. And there are some aspects which really amazed me, firstly different heights, and in my opinion these kind of differentiate Growth Quality hold by very less plants.

And in my opinion Pink is one of the best colour when it comes to producing of Attractive and Eye-catching essence. And literally the second picture is just breathtaking to watch because it's reflecting as these pink flowers are tightly hugging these plants. Keep capturing beautiful aspects of nature.

Wishing you an great day and stay blessed. 🙂

Kurume azaleas are one of the most commonly grown azaleas in Georgia. They were imported from Kurume, Japan, to the Arnold Arboretum in Boston in the early 1900s and soon made their way into the nursery trade. Most Kurume hybrids are low- to medium-growing shrubs (2 to 3 feet), but a few grow to 5 to 6 feet.

Flowers are small but quite numerous, often masking the foliage. Colors range from white to pink, salmon or red, and some are bicolored. Most are cold hardy throughout Georgia. Popular Kurume hybrids include ‘Hinode Giri’ (rose-red flowers), ‘Coral Bells’ (soft pink flowers), and ‘Snow’ (white flowers).

Very nice photos Azaleas, @ctrl-alt-nwo
Thank you for an interesting description of this plant.

In Internet has found even Azaleas -bonsai.
These plants look original, is not it )

Evergreen azaleas are a bit of an unsung garden hero, really. There can’t be many more obliging, hard working plants. Generally regarded as playing second fiddle to their more aristocratic rhododendron family members, they seem to have followed their slide down towards oblivion in recent times. Yet they are such a forgiving plant, tolerant of a wide range of conditions from full sun to almost full shade – as long as it is high shade. They also grow well even where there is a lot of root competition. They can be featured in their own right or they can be a backdrop. And if you have enough different types, the flowering extends for much of the year, though the majority peak for us in September to early October. I tracked the blooms and found the latest varieties still with blooms near Christmas and the first ones showing colour in early March this year. That is a pretty impressive record.

Evergreen azaleas are much easier to propagate than rhododendrons and are worth a try after the new growth has hardened in summer. Alternatively you can raise seed, as Mark’s father did here to bulk up the plantings without having to buy them. They won’t grow true from seed, but we like the variation we have as a result and the mass of bloom we get is unsurpassed.

Known as “The Royalty of the Garden,” azaleas have long been adored for their brightly colored flowers and outstanding form and foliage. Here are a few tips for growing azaleas in your garden!

azalea_full_width.png
“The Royalty of the Garden” seems to be a fitting name for this beautiful and majestic plant, but we’ve got a hunch that once your garden is filled with the colors and fragrance of beautiful blooming azaleas, you’ll probably think that it’s you who’s getting the royal treatment.

DSC_7293.JPG
How to Grow Azaleas

The best time to plant azaleas is in late spring or early fall. Evergreen azaleas do well in partial shade with some wind protection. Deciduous varieties flower more profusely in full sun.
Provide well-drained, humus-rich soil that is slightly acidic (pH 4.5–6).
Fertilizer isn’t needed. The decaying mulch will provide all of the nutrients that azaleas need.
Seldom bothered by insects and diseases, azaleas require little care once established, except for watering during dry times.

Varieties

Deciduous varieties are considered the hardiest, many growing as far north as Zone 4. Some, such as the bright-pink roseshell azalea
images.jpg
(Rhododendron prinophyllum), are even hardy in Zone 3. With few exceptions, most evergreen azaleas are only reliable in Zone 6.

Low-growing ground cover azaleas such as ‘Joseph Hill’, a bright-red-flowering evergreen that grows only to about a foot.

Tall varieties include the white-blooming sweet azalea (R. arborescens), a deciduous plant that can reach 20 feet tall.

Weeping azaleas, such as ‘Pink Cascade’.

Late-Blooming Varieties
While most azaleas flower in spring, there are varieties that extend the season:
Bright-red-azalea-bush_-_West_Virginia_-_ForestWander.jpg

‘Flame Creeper’, an orange-flowering ground cover azalea, and ‘Weston’s Lemon Drop’, with peachy-color buds that open to a soft yellow, both flower in late June or July.

The pink-flowering ‘Sweet September’ is an exceptionally late bloomer.

How To Grow Azaleas

An obscure federal law passed in 1803 states that all homeowners where azaleas will grow must plant azaleas. Because Americans by and large obey the law, if you drive down any street in April and May, it's hard to find one house without azaleas. Therefore, Grumpy feels duty-bound to tell you how grow these colorful bushes, so you will not be brought up on charges.

Native Azaleas vs Exotic Azaleas The two main classes of azaleas, both of which belong to the Rhododendron family, are native azaleas (indigenous to many parts of the U.S.) and non-native, exotic azaleas, most of which hail from Japan. How can you tell them apart? Easy. Native azaleas lose their leaves in winter. Exotic azaleas are evergreen.

Water Treatment Plant
Now you might think that native azaleas are easier to grow than plants from far away. Not so. Evergreen azaleas are much less fussy and much tougher than the natives. I have both in my garden, so I know. Because the evergreens are much more popular, however, the rest of this lesson concerns only them.

image.jpg

Kinds of Evergreen Azaleas Almost all evergreen azaleas are hybrids and there are thousands of them. But the vast majority of azaleas people grow fall into one of three classes. Kurume hybrids, like 'Coral Bells,' ' Hinodegiri,' and 'Hershey's Red,' are dense, slow growers with small leaves. They bloom early and profusely in spring, flowers hiding the foliage, and grow to about 4 feet tall and wide. Southern Indian hybrids, like 'George Lindley Taber' and 'Formosa,' are less dense and bloom a little later. They have larger leaves and flowers, grow much faster, and at least get twice as big. Reblooming hybrids, like the Encores, bloom in both spring and fall with their fall blooms being more profuse. Their flowers and leaves are similar in size to those of the Southern Indians, while the bushes themselves grow about as big as Kurumes.

How to Care for Azaleas

Azaleas are known as the "Royalty of the Garden", and is there really any wonder why? These plants produce blooms that inspire poets to compose and painters to weep with joy. From brilliant and jubilant pink to luscious peach and velvety lavender, these plants produce blooms that are breathtaking to behold.

1
Know if azaleas will fare well in your climate. Azaleas are generally found in Zone 6 growing areas. This means that they need warmer weather where temperatures generally do not dip below 0 or -10ºF (-17.8 to -23.3ºC). If you live in a colder climate, you might consider growing a different type of plant. However, there are some types of azaleas that remain hardy in colder temperatures.[1]:
Deciduous varieties of azaleas like the Roseshell azalea (Rhododendron prinophyllum) can survive in Zone 4. This means that they can survive in climates where the temperatures drop down to -30ºF (-34.4ºC).

2
Plant your azaleas in late spring or early fall. These are the best times to plant azaleas, as most azaleas will bloom in the next spring. However, there are some varieties, like the ‘Weston’s Lemon Drop’ and ‘Flame Creeper’ that will bloom in June or July.[2]
‘Sweet September’, which is a pink bloom, is a very late bloomer that bursts into color in September, as the name suggests.

3
Plant your shrub in the right soil. Azaleas grow well in organically enriched, acidic, well-drained soil. Your soil should have a pH level of 5.5 or to 6.0. It is important that the soil is well drained because these plants don’t do well in soggy soil. You should also avoid heavy clay when planting azaleas, as clay will choke the roots.[3]
If you live in a place without acidic soil, like in alkaline soil area such as Texas, you can build raised flower beds that are composed of a mixture of coarse sphagnum peat moss and finely milled bark.

Good Azalea Care: Azaleas, Noteworthy Shrubs For Any Garden

Nothing is more beautiful than an azalea shrub in spring bloom. These easy-care shrubs come in so many colors it’s hard to find one that doesn’t suit your needs. Azaleas can be grown in nearly any garden, instantly adding interest and color to drab areas.

How to Grow and Care for Azaleas Growing and caring for these shrubs is easy. That being said, there are some things to consider when adding them to the landscape.
Proper Azalea Care To keep azaleas looking healthy, it is essential that you choose an appropriate planting location and practice proper azalea care. Azaleas actually look the most attractive when they are planted alone; however, mass plantings work well in larger areas, such as wooded sites. Since the flower coverage on azaleas encompasses the entire shrub, placing them in a background of conifers, such as pines, or other acid-loving plants will help set off their colors while minimizing their heavy effect. These shrubs should be planted in the spring, preferably within cool, lightly shaded sites. Full sun, especially in southernmost climates, can actually burn the leaves while heavy shade can deprive them of necessary oxygen, resulting in poor blooming and weaker growth.

Provide well-drained, humus-rich soil that is slightly acidic (pH 4.5–6).
Mulch well. Shallow-rooted, azaleas tend to dry out quickly if not mulched. A mulch of oak leaf mold, pine needles, or aged oak, pine, or hemlock sawdust will keep soil acidic and moist. Read more in our Mulching Guide.

VARIETIES TO FIT YOUR LANDSCAPE
With thousands of varieties, there are azaleas for just about every landscape situation:

I love nature very picturesque

Very nice flower plant . Pink color flowers are very beautiful . It is giving good feel to eyes .
Good plant for planting .

Very beautiful flower. Thanks to you, I already know a lot. Azalia is an oriental beauty, with its luxury and elegance capable of captivating even the most fastidious connoisseurs of beauty. At the time of flowering it is simply impossible to take your eyes off her! It is not surprising that both flower growers and breeders show increased interest in it. With their help, more and more new varieties appear that surprise us with their extraordinary coloring. In fact, the azalea color palette is very extensive.


The most common among all species is the azalea of red shades. It includes fiery shades, wine tones, as well as all the colors of scarlet and burgundy

Purple shades are no less popular with rhododendrons.

The leader of the yellow rhododendrons is considered to be the azalea of the Knap-Hill variety.

The pink azalea palette is the most extensive. It originates from tender and pale to rich and colorful paints. Classic hybrid with large rhododendron buds of the “Furnivall’s Daughter” group.

Azaleas /əˈzeɪliə/ are flowering shrubs in the genus Rhododendron, particularly the former sections Tsutsuji (evergreen) and Pentanthera (deciduous). Azaleas bloom in spring.

Plant enthusiasts have selectively bred azaleas for hundreds of years. This human selection has produced over 10,000 different cultivars which are propagated by cuttings.[citation needed] Azalea seeds can also be collected and germinated.

Azaleas are generally slow-growing and do best in well-drained acidic soil (4.5–6.0 pH).[1] Fertilizer needs are low. Some species need regular pruning.

Azaleas are native to several continents including Asia, Europe and North America. They are planted abundantly as ornamentals in the southeastern US, southern Asia, and parts of southwest Europe.

A George Taber azalea
According to azalea historian Fred Galle, in the United States, Azalea indica (in this case, the group of plants called Southern indicas) was first introduced to the outdoor landscape in the 1830s at the rice plantation Magnolia-on-the-Ashley in Charleston, South Carolina. From Philadelphia, where they were grown only in greenhouses, John Grimke Drayton (Magnolia's owner) imported the plants for use in his estate garden. With encouragement from Charles Sprague Sargent from Harvard's Arnold Arboretum, Magnolia Gardens was opened to the public in 1871, following the American Civil War. Magnolia is one of the oldest public gardens in America. Since the late 19th century, in late March and early April, thousands visit to see the azaleas bloom in their full glory.

Azalea
Azaleas are flowering shrubs in the genus Rhododendron, particularly the former sections Tsutsuji (evergreen) and Pentanthera (deciduous). Azaleas bloom in spring, their flowers often lasting several weeks. Shade tolerant, they prefer living near or under trees. They are part of the family Ericaceae.

Care Of Indoor Azaleas: Tips For Growing An Azalea Houseplant

Greenhouse azaleas are those beautiful, multicolored joys of spring, those bright spots in the grocery store or garden nursery when everything else is winter gray.

Tips for Growing an Azalea Houseplant
You can grow azalea indoors much like any other houseplant, but as with other blooming plants, there are a few tricks you need to know about the care of indoor azalea if you want to keep them blooming year after year.

The first step in growing an azalea houseplant is to choose the right shrub. You are looking for greenhouse azaleas, not hardy azaleas, which are only grown outdoors. Both are Rhododendrons, but different sub genres, one of which is only hardy to USDA plant hardiness zone 10. That’s the one you want.

Greenhouse azaleas aren’t always marked as such, but they will almost always be sold indoors and usually come with that decorative foil wrapping around their pots. Look for a plant with only a few buds open and showing color. That way, you’ll be able to enjoy that first full bloom for a longer period of time.

Flower buds should look healthy and be at different stages of development as a sign they are actively growing. An azalea houseplant with yellowed leaves isn’t healthy. Look under the leaves as well. That’s where those pesky whiteflies and mealybugs dwell. They love azaleas.

Care of Indoor Azalea
In their natural environment, these plants live in the understory of high trees. They thrive in cool, filtered sun. Azaleas as houseplants do best at cooler temperatures, ideally around 60-65 F. (16-18 C.). Cooler temperatures will also help the blooms last longer. Keep them well lit, but out of direct sun.

Moisture should be your greatest concern in the care of indoor azaleas. Never allow your plant to dry out. While watering from the top may provide sufficient care, indoor azaleas enjoy the occasional dunk, pot and all, in a larger container of water. When the bubbles stop, pull it out, and let it drain. Whatever you do, don’t let these plants dry out. Keep them damp, not soggy, and don’t fertilize until flowering is complete.

Azalea

Azalea, certain species of Rhododendron, of the family Ericaceae, formerly given the generic name Azalea. Neither the nature of the corolla (ring of petals) nor other characteristics are sufficiently constant to serve as a means of separating these plants into two distinct genera, although azaleas are typically deciduous while rhododendrons are evergreen. Azalea flowers are funnel-shaped, somewhat two-lipped, and often fragrant. Flowers of rhododendrons, on the other hand, are more often bell-shaped. Azalea flowers typically have only 5 projecting stamens, as compared with 10 (or more) in rhododendrons. Intermediate forms, however, do occur.

Cultivated varieties have been bred from species that are native to the hilly regions of Asia and North America. Well-known North American kinds include the smooth, or sweet, azalea (R. arborescens), a fragrant white-flowering shrub 3 to 6 metres (about 10 to 20 feet) high; the flame azalea (R. calendulaceum), a shrub 0.5 to 2 metres (1.5 to 6.5 feet) high; and the pinxter flower (R. periclymenoides), a shrub 1 to 2 metres (3 to 6.5 feet) high, with pink to whitish flowers. Hundreds of horticultural forms have been bred from the Ghent azalea (R. gandavense); the molle azalea (R. molle); the Yodogawa azalea (R. yedoense); and the torch azalea (R. kaempferi).

Every year at around the time when azaleas are in bloom, the Kurume Azalea Festival takes place at Kurume Hyakunen Park. This festival is said to be one of Japan’s Three Major Plant Fairs along with those in Kumamoto City (Kumamoto Prefecture) and Kanuma City (Tochigi Prefecture).
Visitors will find 300 thousand azaleas of 150 different varieties on display! In addition, there are bonsai tree, potted plant and various other displays, and many tourists from all over Kyushu visit the festival by tour bus.

Azalea Plant Care Guide

Referred to as “the Royalty of the Garden,” Azaleas are very popular due to their variance in color, which includes all shades of pinks, purples, reds, oranges, whites and more. They can quite easily take over one’s outdoor garden as they bloom quickly and the flowers are rather large. Azaleas are considered easy to grow indoors or out and may bloom in Spring and again in the Summer, which makes them extremely popular for any occasion. ProPlants offers many types of the lovely flowering plant, Azalea.

Made and Grown in the USA or Canada, including Hybrids

Azaleas are in the genus Rhododendron, with Evergreen Azaleas in the subgenus Tsutsusi and Deciduous Azaleas in the subgenus Pentanthera.

Common Azaleas: Lavender Azalea (Pinxterbloom Azalea), Hot Pink Azalea (Jatropha Integerrima), Azalea Bonsai (Phododendron Indica Chinsan ), White Potted Azalea (Rhododendron 'Gumpo'), Double Bloom Azalea (Clarkia amoena).

Azaleas are beautiful additions to any home and, with the right care, you can enjoy plenty of delightful blooms. Depending on the plant you choose, your azalea could produce pink, lavender, red, peach, white, or even bi-coloured flowers. Some varieties even produced flowers with ruffled petals and the dark leaves make this plant a lovely decorative piece even when it’s not in bloom.

Azaleas prefer bright light and cool temperatures and, when they are happy, they will bloom for three to four weeks. If you want your plant to re-bloom, it might be somewhat challenging by not impossible. The plant will need two months of cold (not freezing) weather during the autumn or winter in order to produce more buds.

By pruning your plant, you wil also ensure that they will branch out further. This makes for a more attractive plant and allows for more growth. You should only prune this plant after it is done flowering. Another good tip to remember is to cut the stem at a 45 degree angle about ¼ inch above the leaf node. The leaf node is the point at which the branch or leaf is attached to the stem or branch. Always use sharp, clean pruning shears so that your pruning does not result in unnecessary damage.

Keep your plant away from sources of heat like fire places, heaters, and so on. If they get too warm, the flower buds will perish before they even have a chance to open. Usually every three years, your azalea will need to be replanted. Make sure that you do so when the plant is done flowering and always use a pot with draining holes.

You can fertilize the plant during its growing season but you should stop when your plant is finished producing flowers. Your plant will no longer require quite as much nutrients when it becomes dormant which is why here is no need to fertilize until it enters its growing season again.

If you plan on sending a potted azalea to a loved one or friend, you might want to include some helpful care tips. This will help ensure that the recipient gets the most out of this floral gift.

AzaleaEssential Southern Plant

The azalea is the number one must-have plant in the South.

STEVE BENDER
Ericaceae
Evergreen and deciduous shrubs
For zones, see below
Filtered sunlight
Regular to ample water
Leaves are poisonous if ingested
Rhododendrons and azaleas are arguably the South’s favorite shrubs. Many people think of them as entirely different plants, but they both belong to the genus Rhododendron, which comprises more than 800 species and 10,000 named selections. Even to the untrained eye, one difference between the two groups is obvious: rhododendrons generally have much larger leaves. From a technical standpoint, rhododendron flowers are bell shaped and have ten or more stamens, while azalea blooms are typically funnel shaped and have five stamens.

  ·  작년

The Kurume Azalea (called "tsutsuji" in Japanese) Festival is a yearly flower-viewing custom where azaleas come out in full bloom every spring. The whole venue is filled with azaleas, potted plants, fruit trees, and bonsais which are also sold and displayed in sample gardens. The plants which are displayed and are for sale are replaced daily, so a lot of visitors both within and from outside Kyushu come not only once, but twice or more. Short lessons on plant care and bonsai care, charity auctions, and more are also hold during weekends.

Wow so very beautiful garden, thanks for sharing.really nice for lovely it @ctrl-alt-nwo


Position: partial shade
Soil: moist, well-drained, humus-rich, acid soil or ericaceous compost
Rate of growth: average
Flowering period: May and June
Hardiness: fully hardy

Masses of small, funnel shaped, yellowish-pink flowers in late spring and early summer, and small, mid green leaves. This low growing, evergreen azalea makes a perfect container plant. The luxuriant flowers, each of which contains two rings of petals, one inside the other, are great for brightening a partly shady patio or courtyard garden.
Garden care: Avoid planting too deeply. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of leaf mould around the base of the plant each spring.

HOW TO PLANT AND GROW AZALEAS

ADD SOME STRIKING COLOUR TO YOUR GARDEN MAKEOVER
Azaleas are a much loved flowering shrub, which come in a wide range of colours and potential heights. Most varieties are long flowering and many are suitable for growing in tubs. Azaleas are relatively easy to grow and long lived if given reasonable care. Our cultural notes should ensure excellent results.

WHERE TO PLANT YOUR AZALEAS
A semi-shaded position, with morning sun, results in better quality flowers and a longer flowering period. Dew or frost followed by sun in the morning can cause burn or fading of the flowers.

ACIDITY AND SOIL CONDITIONS
Azaleas require a pH of around 5.5 or in other words, an acidic soil. Good drainage and a light soil are essential. Heavy soil can be lightened by the addition of peat moss and coarse river sand. The addition of compost is also beneficial.
To learn more about what garden mixes and soil conditioners are right for Azaleas, be sure to check out our soil and garden guide article.

PLANTING AZALEAS
Azaleas are shallow rooted. Their roots feed close to the soil surface. When planting, a shallow half moon shaped hole should be dug up and ideally, peat moss mixed with existing soil. The top of the root ball should be at the same level as the surrounding soil surface when planted. It is advisable with a pot grown Azalea to lightly tease out the root ball before planting to help establish the plant in your garden.

WHEN TO MULCH AZALEAS
A light mulch in late spring is beneficial for Azaleas. This stops the plants from drying out quickly in summer. As Azaleas are shallow rooted, care must be taken not to mulch too heavily. It is therefore advisable to remove the previous year’s mulch before applying another mulch layer.

HOW TO FERTILISE YOUR AZALEAS
Fertilising should commence in August to September and into spring after the flowers have finished and continue until early January or until next years flowers buds have set. In October, an application of Garden Gold which contains a wetting agent is recommended. This should be repeated in January.

WATERING YOUR AZALEAS
Over watering generally kills Azaleas more than anything else does. If in doubt as to watering, feel the soil about 10cm (4 inches) down around the plant to see if it is dry. In summer, regular watering will be required, particularly on hot days. However, during the cool months of the year, a thorough soaking once a week should be sufficient. In winter and spring watering of the foliage should be avoided as this can encourage petal blight.

Kurume azaleas were originally found in the mountains of Japan as early as 300 years ago. As many as 700 different Kurume hybrids have been made since then, of which around 200 are known today. Some of them were imported into the United States beginning in 1915, again in 1917-1918, and again in 1929. More recently a group of 50 more varieties of Kurume hybrids were brought in by the U.S. National Arboretum and released to the public in 1983.
images-5.jpg

Shown here by permission of their author, Dr. Satoshi Yamaguchi, this diagram and most of the Kurume images in the alphabetic galleries are from his Virtual Azalea website.
Rhododendron_azalea_Mothers_Day.jpg
Many of the other Kurume images were taken by Dan Krabill in his garden and at the US National Arboretum, with very careful attention to color and nomenclature.

Kurume originSeveral mountains, including Mt. Kirishima near the city of Kurume on the island of Kyushu, Japan have stands of R. kiusianum, R. kaempferi, R. sataense and the original Kurume hybrids. Some authorities think the Kurumes are hybrids of the first two species, others think they are hybrids of the latter two species, and still others think other species may be involved.
images-4.jpg
As shown by this diagram, Dr. Yamaguchi is in the first camp. His diagram also shows that still more species and hybrids have also been used to produce many of the Kurume hybrids now in the nursery trade.
Kurume azaleas tend to grow as upright medium height shrubs, with numerous small flowers in a full range of colors, blooming early to early midseason.

Congratulations ctrl-alt+nwo sir....For the mess that is bad, I want to blame the word 'mes'. The reason is that the word mesi comes from Messi (not Argentine forward but Barcelona) or dirty. Even if the bachelor's garden is given to the garden, it will be made a cowboy in a few days. So apart from excluding the term 'mess' for the development of the mess, the cleanliness of the bachelors can be done in public and private enterprise by the management of messengers, cleaning clothes, washing clothes and sweeping rooms.... #updated sir
