Ever walk into a grocery store and feel the bright, bold faces of azaleas staring up at you? You are just innocently shopping for groceries and there they are, shamelessly tempting you to take them home. This happens to me more often than I would like to admit.

2. Azalea (Thick)
3. Ivy (Trailing)
Azaleas can add an irresistible punch of color to any room. During a dreary week like this a punch of color is just what the garden expert ordered. In other words…
Life is short. Buy the azaleas!
I’m sure by now you have noticed that this container looks a little emptier than usual. Normally, I like to fill my containers to capacity with beautiful blooms. However, I wanted to show you that sometimes less can be more. In this case, less flowers means more money in your pocket. I wanted to keep each of these container gardens affordable for you. You can get plenty of blooms without spending a ton of bucks. Plus, as I said before, the azaleas pack a lot of punch!
So, what do you do with your azaleas after they are done blooming? Don’t plant them in your yard just yet! Wait for warmer weather and then you can transfer them to your yard. Personally, I have not had much luck with this, but you can check out Guide to House Plants for some incredibly helpful care tips.
Remember: Life is short. Buy the azaleas!
