Slow growing azalea plants
Browse our range of slow growing azaleas plants, available in a mix of evergreen and deciduous varieties, perfect for adding beautiful, vibrant flowers to beds, borders and containers. Azaleas are a sub-set of the rhododendron family, comprising a charming group of smaller-growing varieties with smaller leaves. Like rhododendrons, they are acid loving plants producing long-lasting spring flowers which clothe the entire bush, available in various shades of pinks, reds, oranges and whites. They are easy to grow and shade tolerant, perfect for growing under the canopies of trees or adding impact and colour to drab parts of the garden. As a group, azaleas are generally slower growing and varieties in this section can be expected to put on 5-20cm of new top growth per year, depending on the growing conditions, of course. For the patient gardener, these varieties will look stunning grown as standalone specimens or in mass plantings in larger areas. Trim after flowing to encourage a bushy growth habit. See our Rhododendrons plants category for generally larger varieties with sizable, leathery evergreen leaves.
