My landscape man planted 3 Weston Innocense (White Decid. Azalea) in my new front yard garden bed in early April. My house sits directly nsew and this is on the north side. The area does get sun, especially summer late afternoon. The plants are about 15 feet from the body of the house.
I'm concerned that they will burn in the heat. Ironically, I thought the buds had been winter killed as the leaves were already growing up past the buds. But yesterday (and this is early June!) I saw seveal buds starting to flower!! Yeah!!
I realize this has been a wet cool May and when I reseached online I did find this particular azalea is a late bloomer.
Has anyone planted this particular azalea? Do you think I will lose it based on its location?
Thanks for any imput!
