Wilting azaleas

Zone Brownstown, MI, 48134 | rtremmel added on September 4, 2018 | Answered

Our lawn service put mulch on our beds on a hot day and our azaleas started to wilt. was not home but I watered a few days later but it did not help. Now, near the end of summer the leaves have curled up but none have dropped. What should I do? Sorry I don't know how to upload a photo plus I don't have an I-Phone.

    What kind of mulch was this, and at what pH? It is likely that it threw the pH of the soil off, as this can be a common symptom.

    Another concern will be a fungal infection that was brought about by the mulch. Do you notice any signs of infection such as black spots on leaves or stems? Photos will be very helpful here.
