Help My Potted Blooming Azalea Is Going Down Fast
Ask The Expert: I rec'd a beautiful azalea looking like the 1 in your photo. It remained so for 2 weeks but now...not only has it lost most of it's blooms, the leaves have fallen off also. What did I do wrong??? Carol Anne
Normally azaleas bloom only for a four to six week period. From the time they open an azalea bloom is on its way to death. This is a normal process, so blooms drying and falling off isn't a problem. However, the leaves falling off indicate the azalea is in stress. Water is usually the culprit for this stress. Most florist azalea come to your house wrapped in beautiful paper with a bow. Which is great for presentations but should be removed as soon as possible for the health of the plant. The wrapping does not allow the plant to drain properly. You want to keep your azalea moist but not soggy and in bright light to keep it healthy. So check your soil and make sure excess water is draining away from the plant. Keep the plant evenly moist and it should start to recover. Good luck and keep me posted.
