Girard's Fuchsia Azalea Growing and Maintenance Tips
Azalea have a shallow, fibrous root system, requiring constant moisture, but dislike standing water. They need protection from the midday sun and a fertile soil with a low pH. To promote flowering for the following season, any pruning should be done soon after blooming, to leave enough time for the buds to reset. Protection (burlap wrap) from drying winter winds is recommended in exposed locations.
