Indoor azalea

Name justification:
The name of the genus stems from Greek; it was Latinized later, and was used to designate oleanders, roses and probably a species from this genus, which has grown wild around the Black Sea. In this language it means literally “arboreal rosebush”.
The adjective was named after John Sims (1749-1831), English doctor and botanist who founded the Linnaeus Society. He was also the editor of several magazines, among them, Botanical Magazine.

Common name: Indoor azalea

It comes from the northeast of Burma, China and Taiwan.

There are few specimens. They are located nearby the Church of El Pilar, next to the Oval pond and the playpen.
