The Q&A Archives: Azalea Companion Plants

Question: What can I plant with my azaleas that will bloom later than they do? I have the dwarf variety (to 3') in pink and white.

Answer: I'm with you - I think a progression of bloom makes a garden very interesting. Azalea's like acidic soils and anything you plant near them should like acidic soils, as well. How about Dianthus (pinks), Catharanthus roseus (Madagascar periwinkle), Heliotrope, Lobelia, Salvia, Verbena or Nemesia? All are colorful companions to azalea's - I have most of them in my own yard!
