Can be evergreen or deciduous. In general, the deciduous azaleas will be tougher and prefer full sun/partial shade. Evergreen azaleas do better in partial shade with some protection from the really strong winds that we get here on Skye. Evergreen Azaleas rarely require pruning, but can be shaped immediatly after flowering, if required. Prune deciduous varieties if they become 'leggy'. Most deciduous azaleas are hybrids, native to many parts of North America. Most Evergreen azaleas are originally from China, Japan and Korea.
