Are Azalea's still in season?

parupudiApril 10, 2007

Hi,

I have 2 types of Azalea's in my flower bed. One is the Hinode-giri Pink Azalea and the other is Snow White with large petals.

The white ones did bloom covering up the whole plant a week ago and now they are all gone. I am wondering if they will bloom again or are they done for the season? When is their next season? Do i need to fertilize them or prune them now?

The pink ones are still blooming. But i see that there are not many new buds.

I have pictures of these but i have no clue on how to attach images here.

Thanks

These two bloom once each spring. They sometimes sport (open a couple buds) during the fall or winter.

There are a group of azaleas called Encore Azaleas that bloom in the spring and then start blooming again in summer. They are grown mainly in the SE USA.

ok, here are the 2 pictures of my Azalea's. I am not really sure if they fall under Encore variety or not. Can you please tell me?

Thanks
