Are Azaleas Annuals?

No. Azaleas are deciduous or evergreen shrubs, depending on the variety. An annual is a plant whose entire life--from seed to flower to seed--spans only one growing season. Azalea bushes grow and produce heartily for years without needing to be replanted and bloom in either the spring or the fall.
