These lush and vibrant flowering plants are absolutely radiant when they’re grown to bloom in the winter, and they’re so pretty they almost don’t look real. Azaleas feature dark-green leaves and abundant blooms of papery, delicate petals. Depending on the variety, they’re available in shades of red, pink, yellow, orange, purple, and white.
Azaleas have pretty hardy bulbs, which means that planted in an outdoor Danvers garden with a healthy covering of mulch, they’ll be able to withstand the winter. If you’re transplanting bulbs from your florist, be sure to plant them during their natural blooming times, in either late spring or early fall.
