Q.Azaleas Falling Over

Anonymous added on May 18, 2011 | Answered

I just bought a house that has beautiful azalea bushes with lots of blooms. I live in a slightly mountainous region of southern Pennsylvania. The azaleas seem to grow well. However, my problem is that the branches seem too heavy to stand up. They grow out of the ground and flop over. Is this a result of not pruning them? How can I get my azaleas to stand up?

Is the plant in deep shade? It sounds like it may be leggy, perhaps due to a lack of sun. Pruning can help, but you may want to see if you can also get it a bit more sunlight.
