Azalea Plants

Deadheading Azaleas


Anonymous added on April 13, 2012 | Answered

I planted a small azalea plant. It was in bloom at the time. We are in central Florida, Lakeland to be exact. It is planted where it will be in shade part of the day. We did not test the soil, but a geranium does well there. The pretty pink blossoms have all become a rusty color and are dry. Should I deadhead them, and if so, where on the stem should they be deadheaded?
