This may sound like a silly question to some but...is there an elevation that azaleas don't do well in? I live outside of Seattle, about a thousand feet up a mountain. I have lived here only a couple of years and I am learning that there is a difference in some things. For instance we got three feet of snow this winter when everyone else got a foot or less.
I am on my second set of little azaleas and they don't look like they are thriving. I think they probably have some winter damage. I can understand that I might need to cover them for the deep winter but if they are never going to be happy here I will stop torturing the little things.
