Azalea Fireball Leaves
Hi! I planted a Deciduous Azalea Fireball plant last year in August, but this year it's still not lost its leaves. Last year it lost all its leaves by the end of October and this year it flowered at the right time May-July. Can you give me some info please? Thank you.

If your azalea is otherwise healthy, I don't believe you have any cause for concern. Some deciduous azaleas remain evergreen during winter seasons with warmer than average temperatures. Plus, the late leaf drop may be weather related. Have yours produced colorful fall foliage yet?
