The beginning of Spring is welcomed by the the Blooming Azalea Plant. Throughout most of the USA Azaleas are cultivated in the Greenhouse to prepare them for sale in early spring. The natural blooming period for an Azalea is mid to late Spring. The Azalea is one of the most popular Blooming Plants during Mother's Day, but are also popular throughout the Spring for any occasion.
The traditional Potted Azalea Plant is a gift that brings long lasting flowers indoors. In most regions of the country the Potted Azalea Plant may be kept indoors to enjoy the blooms and then transplanted into the garden for year after year enjoyment. Potted Azaleas are now available throughout most of the year in most temperate regions of the country. Potted Azaleas that are greenhouse propagated are not hardy and not meant for outdoor use in climates that have a frost.
