    Tall growing rhododendrons make ideal screens or flowering hedges while medium-sized Rhododendrons and Azaleas are perfectly suited for beds and borders. Low-growing rhododendrons can be placed in front of other rhododendrons or used as foundation plantings.   Azaleas generally are smaller and sturdier, with smaller leaves and flowers. Varieties range from low-growing spreaders that can be used as ground covers to compact plants that do well in containers to tall hybrids that can double as small trees. The most familiar azaleas are the evergreen hybrids, some of which are sold as florists’ plants.
