Experience the explosion of color when thousands of azaleas at the National Arboretum light up the forest with their subtle shades and colors.The Kurume azaleas were brought to North America from Japan.  The Glenn Dale Azalea Hillside is filling in after the azaleas were rejuvenated several years ago. This year, about 60% of the hillside is closed off to the public due to a family of bald eagles nesting there for the first time in over 60 years.
