General Plant Care:    Azaleas do best in consistently semi-moist but well-drained acidic soil, rich with organic matter. Most azaleas prefer partial or filtered shade, but reblooming varieties may need more sun to encourage a second bloom cycle. Use a fertilizer for acid-loving plants, and apply after spring bloom. Lace bugs are a common pest on azaleas. Plant out of full sun to avoid stress that makes azaleas susceptible to lace bugs, or consider a systemic pesticide. Read the label for proper use.
General Planting Tips:    Some plants, including camellias, azaleas, iris, ferns, and dogwood, prefer shallow planting. Choose a site suited to your plant's light, soil, and space needs. Dig a hole three times as wide as the container. Remove plant from container and place in the hole after having loosened the roots slightly. Add soil back to the hole ensuring the top of the root ball is 1-2 inches above the original soil level. No soil should be put on top of the root ball. Water and add more soil to the surrounding area if needed. Add 2-3 inches of mulch around plant, unless no mulch is specified in the care requirements.
General Fertilizing Tips:    Acidic fertilizer after flowering according to package directions.
General Pruning suggestions:    With a beautiful natural form, there is little need to prune. If you think your azaleas need pruning, do so immediately after the spring flowering for maximum bud set. Light pruning of more established plants will stimulate growth and flowering.
