Rhododendrons and azaleas are a favourite for Highlands Gardens. Many people think of them as different plants, but they both belong to the genus Rhododendron. The one difference between the two groups is : Rhododendrons generally have much larger leaves, also Rhododendron flowers are bell shaped and while Azalea blooms are typically funnel shaped.

Mollis azaleas are available in the cooler months of the year. They are a deciduous azalea and make a good back planting with smaller shrubs in front.

Camellia's are best chosen in Autumn when they start to come into bud and flower. With many hardy varieties and colours to select from it can be hard to decide.
