Some varieties can get quite tall, up to 10 feet, while others remain spreading groundcovers less than 12 inches in height. The rate of growth is a good predictor of the ultimate size, varying from around 2 to 10 inches a season, depending upon the variety, the climate and other environmental conditions (like water and nutrition). Many of the sizes listed in catalogs are based on 10 year height. For landscape use near the home, consider choosing some of the smaller varieties, like those with a 10 year height of 3 to 5 feet. Larger varieties can be kept smaller, however, with annual pruning. This article can help with that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/azalea/pruning-azaleas.htm
