The evergreen azalea is a real evergreen shrub. Evergreen azaleas retain foliage throughout the year. Azaleas are part of the rhododendron family of plants. Azaleas produce a stunning spring display of trumpet shaped flowers. Two types of deciduous azaleas include the Piedmont and Florida azalea that produce flowers before foliage appears in the spring.
