Using Different Types of Azaleas in Your Home
Different Azalea Flower Types
Use groups of three.
Using a group of at least three azaleas of
a particular kind is usually more effective than having little spots of
many colors scattered in your garden.
Consider the background.
What will be behind your azaleas? Bright oranges
and light pinks usually clash with brick buildings but look wonderful with
Light pinks and whites are especially striking
in woodlands where the light intensity is too low for brighter colors.
Bright reds can lose their effectiveness when
too many are put together. Mix them with whites, pinks, bi-colors,and dark
evergreen shrubs for a much better look in springtime.
Put a striking azalea in the spotlight.
Use an especially striking azalea in a prominent
spot to heighten interest in that part of your garden. Some of the bi-colors
such as Janet Rhea or Mount
St. Helen work well in this way.
