Had this shrub installed in the spring and it now has a few flowers (December 1st, 2016). In New Jersey. Some say azalea and some say rhododendron. Would like to know for sure.

    Forgot to say: Lately some ‘azalea’ cultivars have been developed to bloom in spring and fall. (Not to mention that abnormally warm weather can cause blooming out of season.)

    From Wikipedia: Azaleas / ze li / are flowering shrubs in the genus Rhododendron, particularly the former sections Tsutsuji (evergreen) and Pentanthera (deciduous). Azaleas bloom in spring, their flowers often lasting several weeks. My impression: What we tend to call Rhododendron have larger leaves, larger flowers, and bloom in summer or late spring.
