Azalea bush doing poorly

Zone 20003 | Anonymous added on June 24, 2019 | Answered

Hi, I am relatively new to gardening. I planted two azaleas about 6 weeks ago. One is thriving, but the other (planted only about four feet away) is struggling. Leaves along the top are turning orange/brown and a dying. Not sure if this is a disease or watering issue. (They have been watered the same amount, but maybe the sick bush’s root didn’t take for some reason?) Would love some advice on what is causing this and how to beat remedy it. Thank you!! Best, Catie

is likely that the soil is not acidic enough. I am starting to see some signs of the same thing on the other shrub. I would apply a fertilizer specific for these plants, as they will contain the acidity needed for them to thrive. This article will give you more information on the care of these: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/azalea/azaleas-noteworthy-shrubs-for-any-garden.htm
