I planted my Azalea bush last year. It did have couple of blooms on it in Nov. Now my leaves are brown. Is it DEAD or in need of pruning?

This could be a number of things--too little or too much water, over fertilizing, leaf scorch (if planted in too much sun), etc. It may help to prune the plants to help rejuvenate it.
