Cut Down Azalea Bush

Anonymous added on June 24, 2011 | Answered

I had my son do some trimming around the house and he accidentally cut down my Azalea bushes. They are cut about an inch up from the ground and about 3/4 to 1. 5 inch in diameter. The root system is still intact. My question is, will these bushes regrow?

They should grow back but don't expect any flowering for a while. Regular pruning can and does rejuvenate these plants; however, this is awfully close to the ground. You'll just have to cross your fingers and wait. You might want to continue watering them so their roots can remain strong and nourished.
