Where can I buy an Azalia?

On plant Rhododendron ponticum



Well, Rhododendron ponticum isn't an Azalea and what's more you can't but it anywhere - in fact it's illegal to sell it since it's classed as a dangerously invasive weed.

I would guess that you're looking for Rhododendron luteum (with fragrant, sulphur-yellow tubular flowers) which used to be known as Azalea pontica? You can get a moderate selection of Azaleas, including this very widely grown species at most decent garden centres, and a much better selection at many specialist nurseries.

Alternatively check out the RHS Plantfinder online to find a supplier near you:
