Azaleas are from the family ‘Ericaceae’, which is the family of heaths or heathers, and belong to the genus ‘Rhododendron’, a group of woody plants. It is a popular flowering shrub species and there are thousands of cultivars. They are mainly spring-blooming (May to June) and the flowers last just a few weeks. Blooms are typically pink and white, white Azaleas are also known as the ‘Royalty of the Garden. Azaleas are either deciduous or evergreen, depending on the species, and generally like to grow under the shade of trees. They can grow up to 2.5 meters (8.2 feet) tall, although some only grow to half that height. It also makes for a fantastic house plant until they outgrow their pot and then they can be transferred to the garden.
At Chrysal we have three solutions which can help prolong the selling period and improve the display quality and appearance of your Azaleas. The first is the Aquastick which works by supplying your plants with water from a reservoir. Like all water supplies the larger your reservoir the longer your plant will be able to survive on that reservoir without the need for topping up.
