You'll want to keep an eye on this broadleaved evergreen. It might just try to float away like the clouds it seems to emulate. Cascade Azalea (Rhododendron x 'Cascade') takes the color white and absolutely runs with it! Goodness gracious, is it possible we've found the prettiest, most pristine of the Azaleas? It's hard to believe but it might just be true as this compact shrub will cover itself from top to bottom in glorious white with yellow spotting trumpet-shaped flowers.
Before and after blooming, you'll be enthralled by the delightful green foliage. However, in its peak flower season, spring, the leaves simply won't be visible underneath the sheer amount of blooms. Don't worry, the leaves don't mind sharing the spotlight for a little while. As a broad-leaf evergreen shrub, you'll have plenty of time after flowering is done to marvel.
If you're feeling especially decorative, try snagging a branch or two to add to your indoor bouquets. The bright white blooms will complement other flowers without overpowering the entire ensemble. Whether you bring them in or leave the shrub entirely intact, you'll be rewarded with the abundance of ruffled blooms that are all but a staple among Azaleas!
We suggest you plant it somewhere the fragrance can waft through a kitchen or dining room window but even out in your backyard gardens, it'll still be extremely appreciated. Beneficial pollinators and Hummingbirds will flutter from near and far for a quick snack. This is one shrub you won't want to miss out on. No matter the amount of space you're working with, Cascade Azalea will elevate the flower power of your landscape. Order yours to complete your gardening dreams today!
During fall and winter, Cascade's glossy green leaves become a dark yellow-green, adding interest to your garden even when most other plants are done for the year. Hardy deciduous shrubs throughout USDA growing zones 5 to 8 and grows 3 feet in height and 4-6 feet wide.
Big spaces, small spaces, up against the wall spaces. There's nothing this versatile little bush can't do and no garden where it won't work! Do you have a backyard that backs up to a wooded area? Turn it into the entrance to a mystical fairy forest each spring with the addition of one of these enticing shrubs.
If you happen to have an opening underneath a window, we highly recommend rehoming your broad-leaved evergreen there. That way you can take full advantage of the eye-catching beauty each bloom provides. Use it as a hedge along your front walkway. Entryways bordered by these will be astounding each spring and are sure to create an incredible first impression.
Are you lucky enough to have a larger garden? Try adding a few Cascades together to create a mass planting your neighbors will be "oohing" and "ahhing" for years to come. Of course, returning to the basics, like most Azaleas, this bush makes a lovely accent to perennial flower beds. Due to its size, Cascade could also be used as a background specimen, planters and containers, or as the main attraction!
Since Cascade Azaleas doesn't ask for all sun all the time, it's the perfect plant to add to your east-facing foundation walls. This gives it some nice morning sun while offering a bit of protection in the afternoons. Simply find a nice spot that gets a bit of sun but also a bit of shade. It does extremely well in east-facing gardens. That lets it get sun in the mornings and protection from the hot sun in the afternoons.
Like most plants, well-drained soil is best. Who likes having soggy wet feet all the time anyway? Not us! Should you happen to have soil rich in organic matter, then your Azalea will flourish. Simply add a layer of mulch around the base of the shrub to help maintain even moisture.
For as pretty and delicate as Cascade Azalea looks, you'd be astonished by how easy they are to take care of and keep happy.
As an added bonus, the mulch will add aesthetics to your garden and will contrast nicely with the green leaves and yellow-white blossoms. While this shrub is known for its compact nature, should you want to give it a trim you absolutely can. As soon as your Azalea is done blooming, grab your shears and only prune them to your desired size and shape so as not to disturb next year's blooms.

Azaleas and Rhododendrons prefer partial shade (both dappled shade all day or morning sun with afternoon shade). Plant in a slightly acidic, consistently moist, enriched and well-drained soil location for best results. Their shallow roots dislike soggy soil but thrive with a 3-4 inch layer of arborist mulch over their surface.
Cascade Azaleas can reach around 2-3 feet in height and spreads 4-6 feet in width in optimal conditions.
Azalea and Rhododendron shrubs are very easy to grow and low-maintenance. Water during drought, prune only after flowering and fertilize with an acid-loving organic, slow-release flowering plant fertilizer.
All Azaleas are Rhododendrons but not all Rhodondendrons are Azaleas. Azalea tends to be smaller-sized with smaller leaves and stems, while Rhododendrons can be larger with stout branching and larger bloom trusses. There can both be either deciduous or broad-leaved evergreens.
