Azalea General Information

Bright flowers cover this deciduous shrub for a glorious Spring show. In warmer climates or unusually warm winters, deciduous Azaleas may retain some of their leaves through winter. A new set of leaves will emerge in spring.

Azalea Plant Care

Good drainage is important since they dislike wet feet. Blooms on old wood, so prune to shape immediately after flowering to encourage bushier growth or cut branches to help renew overgrown plants. Fertilize in early spring. Mulch with pine needles to help keep the soil moist, and maintain or add acidity to the soil. Azalea have shallow roots; therefore, mulching will help keep weeds to a minimum without disturbing the root system.
