Azalea Plant Care
Azalea have shallow roots and require a well-drained, acidic soil. Perfecto Mundo Series blooms on old wood in spring, then later, on new wood. Hardy to zone 6B and is better suited to milder coastal areas of 6B than harsh Midwestern sites. In zone 6B, select a protected location and mulch well. Fertilize with a rose fertilizer in early spring just as the new growth begins to emerge then again after the spring bloom is complete. Do not fertilize after mid-July.
