Evergreen azaleas do well in partial shade with some wind protection.
Deciduous varieties flower more profusely in full sun.
Provide well-drained, humus-rich soil that is slightly acidic (pH 4.5–6).
Mulch well. Shallow-rooted, azaleas tend to dry out quickly if not mulched. A mulch of oak leaf mold, pine needles, or aged oak, pine, or hemlock sawdust will keep soil acidic and moist
Seldom bothered by insects and diseases, azaleas require little care once established, except for watering during dry times.
