Soil: Fertile, well-drained organic soil. Acidic soil is necessary for azaleas, with an ideal pH around 5.5 to 6.2.
Light: Filtered to partial sun -- Part sun to dappled shade is ideal, and the hotter your climate, the more shade becomes necessary.
Water: Azaleas are shallow rooted, and will need regular watering in times of extreme heat. Adding a 2-3" layer of shredded bark mulch beneath them will help keep the soil moist and cool. Do not use rock mulches around azaleas.
Fertilizing: Reblooming azaleas benefit from fertilizing after their spring bloom. You may use a rose fertilizer or a rhododendron/azalea fertilizer. Never fertilize reblooming azaleas after late July.
Winterizing: Planting in a protected area from harsh winter winds will help prevent winter damage. Plants should be mulched for winter.
Maintenance & Pruning: Plants may be pruned or lightly trimmed after their spring bloom to encourage new growth and a better rebloom.
