AzlaeasFor a beautiful spring bloom, Azaleas have few challengers. Somewhat tender, they benefit by planting sites on the north or the east side of the house for protection from southwest winter winds. Be sure the planting area has good drainage, with ample organic matter to provide good moisture for the plant to use. It won't tolerate "wet feet" so the drainage is important. Part shade is best.
One evergreen cultivar to consider is Girard's Crimson As the name suggests this medium sized type has bright scarlet red blooms.
