When does stewartsonian azalea bloom in north MA?
We bought the plant in early May last year when it was covered in blooms. I'm not a very experienced gardener but we took great care in planting it: a large hole with 1/3 soil, 1/3 peat, and 1/3 compost, being careful to set it slightly above the soil line.
So far this year only a very few little green leaves at the base. I don't think the plant is dead but the suspense is killing me. I was *so* looking forward to seeing it in bloom this year. Has something gone horribly wrong (it was a tough winter) or should I just be patient?
