Exuberant and lavish flowers have made azalea one of the most popular flowering indoor plants in Belgium and the showpiece of Flemish floriculture. Azalea indica was brought to Europe from China and Japan at the end of the 18th century. The first azaleas to arrive in our country in had small flowers and only bloomed for a week, but thanks to decades of research and refinement, numerous improvements have successfully been introduced. As a result, today’s indoor azaleas have beautiful, double flowers - which bloom up to 6 weeks - in a wide range of colors.
With over 150 commercial cultivars, a suitable indoor azalea can be found for every taste and every interior. Flemish azalea growers have an extremely important share in this market. Today, around 75%% of European azaleas originate from the Ghent region. Flemish azalea growers have therefore applied to the European Union to have their product recognized as a European regional product.
Harry van Trier’s Gentse Azalea lets us discover the history, the beauty, the economical assets and the many uses of this gem from the Ghent region.
