  • Did you know that azaleas and rhododendrons are essentially the same thing? They are both members of the rhododendron genus; they have similar blooms and similar cultural requirements.  
    Some say the primary difference between the two is the number of pollen-bearing stamens:  rhods have 10 or more per flower and azaleas have only five.  
    The rhododendron genus is divided into five main groups:  Large-leaf rhods; small-leaf rhods; Vireya rhods; deciduous azaleas; and evergreen azaleas. The latter two are our primary concern here.
