What is the best month to plant azaleas?
The best time to plant azaleas is in spring and fall. Plant them in a sunny spot that gets a good amount of afternoon shade.
When planting azaleas, fill the hole with a 50/50 blend of existing soil and Miracle-Gro® Garden Soil for Trees & Shrubs. Once planted, gently tamp the soil and water thoroughly.
How fast do azaleas grow?
Azalea Growth Rate. These shrubs typically grow at a rate of less than 12 inches per year. As they get older, the rate at which their foliage and height grow slows down.
Plants in their immature or juvenile stages grow faster than those in their maturing or mature stages.
Do azaleas prefer sun or shade?
Azaleas prefer a little sun and a little shade. Plant them in blazing hot sun and they may suffer leaf scorch or become targets for leaf-sucking pests, such as spider mites and lace bugs.
Plant them in dense shade and they won’t bloom.
