Information on our best selling Azaleas:
Deciduous Azaleas: Azalea such as Azalea Lemon Drop, Azalea Dragon Fire, Azalea Pink and Sweet, Azalea Tri-lights, and Azalea Ribbon Candy are deciduous plants which mean they lose their leaves in the winter.

How to Care for your Azalea Shrubs:
Azaleas is best planted in Full to Partial Sun as this brings out the best color in the foliage. Very little is needed as far as care is concerned with Azalea. A supplemental watering is sometimes beneficial during periods of prolonged drought. If after many years your azaleas seem tired they can be pruned hard. Doings this in the spring is the best opportunity as the plant has the most vigor during the spring. Azaleas do benefit from the addition of acid to the soil and this can be done by simply spreading used coffee grounds around the plants. We’ve written a great article on using coffee grounds in the garden which you can read by clicking HERE.
