Azalea

Anonymous added on August 9, 2015 | Answered

A friend has asked me to cut her azaleas way back for security purposes. So I can advise her best, she may not have blooms next season but the bush will recover quickly with new growth and at least leaves, correct? The bushes are almost 6' tall and 8'-10' across.

Below is an article on pruning azaleas that you can share with your friend. If you rejuvenate prune an azalea right after flowering new growth can mature and new buds can grow before the next flowering season.
