azalea in container

Zone Colorado approximately 5400 ft. alt. | ColoChic added on June 29, 2015 | Answered

I have an azalea in a container that was left out in cold temps this spring and it looks like it is dead (the leaves are brown). Is there any way to revive it and, also, what special care does it need if kept in a container?

Trim the branches back to a point where the stems are soft and bendy. If they snap and break they are dead.
Here are a few articles with more information.
