I believe it is an azalea but it could be a rhobodrone.

They look so similar in the store, I can't tell the difference.

Azalea's are rhododendrons (but not necessarily the other way around). Look at the botanical name of azaleas, and you'll see "Rhododendron." At first glance, that looks like a PJM hybrid.

That is not my house but I wanted to do something similar for my own house. Is this not a good placing for this bush?

I was planning to plant some bushes along my foundation line this week.

Azaleas like shade........is that where you want to plant them?

Rhododendrons, (dang, that's a hard word to spell, huh!), can get pretty big, like hibiscus....(or even a lot bigger than hibiscus).. And I think deer like to chew on them, too....
