Also to know is, do azaleas do well in Florida?
In Florida, azaleas prefer a little shade from hot afternoon sun and can do well in dappled shade areas. Keep in mind deep shade even in Florda will cause the azaleas to become thin. Choose an area that contains moist but well-drained, humus-rich soil that is slightly acidic in ph. Plant your azalea shallow.
Furthermore, where is the best place to plant azaleas? Plant them in dense shade and they won't bloom. A good location is where they receive either dappled sun all day or sun in the morning and light shade in the afternoon. Good places might include spots under trees, or along the north side of your house.
Additionally, how long does it take azaleas to grow?
There are two types of azaleas. Evergreen azaleas, sometimes called Japanese azaleas, are smaller and slower growing, reaching up to 3ft ( up to 90cm) after ten years.
Why are my azaleas not growing?
Another possibility is drought or inadequate irrigation during the bud set. Be careful to water the plant well every few weeks, especially just after the azalea blooming periods are over. Too much nitrogen fertilizer can prevent azalea blooming too. Nitrogen encourages foliage growth at the expense of flowering.
