Container Azalea Plants

Q.I have a 15 year Azalea that I’ve always wintered indoors. Can/how can I plant it outdoors?

Love the plant: Total flowers in December. Just hard to care for through the winter. If it is possible: need planting and care information.

I understand your concern. If you can get it through one more winter, it will be safe to plant it in the ground in the early springtime. You are in Zone 4b, and you might be able to do it now, but it would be safer to wait since your winters can get extremely cold.
