It arrived in perfect condition and in spite of benign neglect seems to be thriving.

its been over a month nothing much growth

i ordered 8 plants ( mix of white and purple )two of them werent too strong on arrival and on the weak side . Its been over a month and its June 22. I live in North GA zone 7b. nothing much in change in size. with all the rain we've been getting . Whole week of rain all day then a few days break and then daily rain all day for 5 days. Used liquid feed.. No sign of any blooms, so im glad i picked up some hydrangeas at my local garden center so i can see some blooms

Turned brown two weeks after planting

I was so excited about these, and they arrived beautifully. I planted them in a partial sun/partial shade spot (gets morning sun) with Espoma azalea fertilizer mixed in with compost and the native soil according to the packaging. Two weeks later (and with consistent watering) half of them (I ordered 6 plants) have lost more than half of their leaves and the remaining leaves are brown. The other three look fine and they’ve all had the same treatment so I’m absolutely puzzled. Pictures are of one of the dying plants and one of the healthy ones.

Hi Rachel. I'm so sorry to hear your plants aren't doing so well! I'm Miranda, a horticulturist for Great Garden Plants. Browning azalea leaves are a sign of overwatering and poor drainage, probably stemming from the addition of compost to the holes. We generally don't recommend amending the soil at the time of planting, because if it is not thoroughly incorporated, then the creates something we call a 'bathtub effect' You can read about it here: https://www.provenwinners.com/learn/how-plant/should-you-amend-your-soil-when-you-plant
