Encore Azaleas

Recently had the leaves of my Encore azaleas fade from dark green to light with some browning in your opinion was this the result of overwatering or sunburn. I am in FL where it gets wet and hot. Whats the best way to get them back to normal. Jerry

Every spring you should see some yellowing and leaf drop as the plant replaces it's old leaves with new. I would have thought that in your area that would happen around early april. If you see the leaves curlying up, that is a sign of too much water. If they curl down, it is too little water. Browning at the tips sounds like too much sun, some afternoon shade would help.
