How to Care for Azalea Blaauw's Pink
Be sure to read our planting instructions to ensure a healthy and happy plant for years to come!
How do I water Azalea Blaauw's Pink Shrubs?
After backfilling and lightly compacting the 50/50 mix of existing soil and compost, give the Azalea Shrubs a deep watering. Do not rush this process. Most of the water you put on the plant at first will run away from the plant until the soil is soaked. A general rule of thumb is to count to 5 for every one gallon of pot size. For example, when watering a one-gallon pot, do not stop until you count to 5. For a three-gallon container, you would count to 15 before stopping watering. For the first week, check the plant daily and then every other day. Be sure to water using the counting method for the first few weeks.
How do I fertilize Azalea Blaauw's Pink Shrubs?
Azalea Blaauw's Pink Shrubs grow best when fertilized lightly in the spring once frost has passed with a well-balanced, extended-release fertilizer such as Espoma Holly-tone. Fertilize Azalea Blaauw's Pink again 6 to 8 weeks later to encourage extra flowers or faster growth of young shrubs. Either chemical fertilizers or organic matter can be used successfully with Azalea Shrubs. Since an organic method of applying manure and/or compost around the roots produces excellent results and improves the condition of the soil, this would be an excellent first line of attack. Organic additions to the soil can be combined with a shot of chemical fertilizer for maximum effect. If chemical fertilizers are used on your Azalea Shrubs, applying a slow-release, balanced fertilizer once a year is probably the simplest solution.
How do I mulch Azalea Blaauw's Pink Shrubs?
We highly recommend that you mulch your Azalea Blaauw's Pink Shrubs with either a ground hardwood mulch or a ground cypress mulch depending on your local availability. Any mulch will do, but cypress or hardwood mulch will be of a higher quality. They will also provide better nutrition overall as they break down. Mulching helps keep weeds away that compete with your new investment for water and nutrients. A 2 to 3-inch layer of mulch is sufficient but remember to take care not to cover any part of the stem with mulch. It's better to leave a one-inch gap of space between the mulch and the stem or trunk of the plant.
How do I prune Azalea Blaauw's Pink Shrubs?
Azalea Blaauw's Pink Shrubs, commonly known as Deciduous Azaleas, are closely related to our native rhododendrons. This deciduous shrub is known for its brilliant summer display of vibrant blooms in early to mid-summer. The flowers bloom during the previous season's growth, so you must wait to prune until blooms expire to avoid cutting off the developing flower buds.
