Rome's Spanish Steps blooms with azaleas

300 lilac and white azaleas decorate the Spanish Steps.

Rome's Spanish Steps, which link Piazza di Spagna with the church of Trinità de’ Monti, are currently decorated with 300 white and lilac azalea plants, in an annual spring tradition dating back more than 80 years.

The plants were cultivated in the capital’s nurseries at S. Sisto where for around a century 3,000 azaleas of the Rhododenron Indicum variety have flourished.
Once the azaleas have ceased flowering they will be returned to the city nurseries until next spring.
