Putting a Florist Azalea Outside
I received an interesting azalea as a gift due to a death in the family. It is an oddball with little rose shaped flowers. It's stopped blooming now, but I want to know if it would be better to plant it in the fall or wait until winter to transplant outside. Our climate is hot and dry in the summer but relatively mild in the winter (20Ã¯Â¿Â½ for short periods of time) but not sure if they could do with a relatively warm period to establish. I know about soil prep, but since they are a tough plant in our area, climate wise, I thought I'd better ask.
