'Cheerful Giant'

             Deciduous azaleas have no leaves in winter and so they don't suffer from freezing, though in early spring they can suffer from late spring frosts. On this page I mention azaleas more sold and planted in the UK and the USA. Every region has his own climate with conditions which can vary. Some varieties don't do well in cold or hot climates.
             These azaleas offer a wide range of colours and forms as no other Rhododendron can offer. They arose by complicated hybridizing  from the wild species or native azaleas in Asia and the USA and the Caucasus in Europe. Especially in Belgium and England, but also in the Netherlands, Germany and the USA hybridizers did a lot of breeding for excellent new azaleas. Since some decades there is a new appreciation of the native azaleas in the USA, which has lead to many new hybrids or forms of these azaleas. Now we can all enjoy the results of these fine species and their hybrids!!
             I will not tire you with the complicated origine and classification in species and subspecies, but will mention some native azaleas and give you some lists of hybrids. Enjoy also the connected pictures!
