Indoor Azalea Houseplants • Indoor azalea houseplants

Indoor azalea houseplants are beautiful, flowering shrubs in the genus Rhododendron. Azaleas bloom in the spring (May and June in the temperate Northern Hemisphere), their flowers often lasting several weeks. Shade tolerant, they prefer living near or under trees. They are part of the family Ericaceae.

Known to help counteract formaldehyde from sources such as foam insulation and plywood, azaleas are ideal for the basement if there is a sunny spot available. These beautiful flowers thrive in cool and humid spaces, making them ideal for some indoor areas of your home.

Caring for indoor Azaleas:

  1. Indoor azaleas need good, consistent light. Bright, indirect light all day is fine
  2. Try to keep your indoor azalea temperatures around 60-65 degrees. This temperature range will also help the blooms last longer
  3. Azaleas need water, so never let these plants dry out. The soil should always be moist, but never waterlogged.
