How do you care for Azaleas?
These set their buds in the fall, so if you want to have spring flowers, you do any necessary pruning in the spring after they have flowered. They may not be hardy in cold weather, so you need to water them when a freeze is expected to protect the roots and cover the foliage.

Answer . Azaleas like - an acid soil of pH no more than 6 - good drainage - protection from heat - patchy shade - lots of organic matter - ensure the root ball is not i…n a ball when planting- gently straighten or hose soil off.
I think you may be talking about the Kurume Azaleas . They are small evergreen shrubs that prefer a alkaline soil so a top dressing of peat annually will do no harm.
North America has 16 native species which are all deciduous. Japan and Asia have a number of species azaleas and many of them are evergreen.

\nI found this answer on another site, posted by a horteculturist\n. \nAlthough the grower chose to braid the trunks of this Azalea shrub, it is still an Azalea and has the s…ame care requirements.\n. \nAzaleas love cool temps and fresh air. They do best outside in the warmer months. Indoors they need lots of light, cool temps, and soil that is kept constantly moist, but not left standing in water. Even a single episode of drought can do it in. High humidity also helps. Fertilize with an acid-based fertilizer (Miracid) when it is growing actively.\n. \nNew flower buds are formed in the summer and are much larger than leaf buds. It is best to keep the plant in a semi-shady cool place outdoors in summer. Cool temps of about 50 degrees in the winter are important for setting buds. So in the fall, let it stay outdoors until the temperatures are close to freezing. Then bring it indoors and put in a sunny window.\n. \nFor now, keep yours inside where you can enjoy the flowers. Prune it back by about one-third following its spring blooming period, particularly long stems without many leaves. Then move it outside for the summer and follow the instructions above.
Right after they bloom. Shape and trim them with a hand clipper not an automatic cutter.

Azaleas should not require pruning. If the bush is outgrowing the space cut it back hard, you will lose a years flowers but it will recover. I would consider moving it and rep…lacing it with a less vigorous variety that will not outgrow the allotted space.
An azalea is a flowering bush or shrub, either of two subgenera of the genus Rhododendron . They differ in many respects from the other types of rhododendron, most notably fo…rming single flowers instead of groups. An azalea plant will usually create all of its blooms during a single short period. Azaleas can be poisonous to horses, goats, and other animals. NOTE The term "azalea poisoning" is also a term for food-borne infections by Bacillus cereus . This has no relation to the plant.
