Azaleas, the national flower of Nepal, are part of an ancient group of plants dating back million of years. They are related to rhododendrons and blueberries and are descendents of Asian shrubs. Azaleas can also be used as a centerpiece for weddings or to replace expensive cut flower arrangements in your home or office. These plants have terminal blooms, which means the entire plant flowers at one time, making a beautiful display. Since florist azalea plants are different than outdoor azalea plants, they rarely do well planted in your garden.

These plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children. Read more about common houseplants that are poisonous in Don’t Feed Me To Your Cat! A Guide to Poisonous Houseplants
