Yes, you can use a fertilizer with a 3:1:6 ratio, but later you might want to supplement nitrogen and phosphorus to be a more all-purpose type fertilizer. Azaleas typically prefer acidic soil, so you may want to choose a fertilizer specifically formulated for acid-loving plants or one labeled for use on azaleas and rhododendrons in the future.
