rate of growth
I planted a tiny Northern Lights azalea this past spring that was a six inch twig from Bluestone. It is now about 8 inches tall with a single 2" sprout. It is in a wooded area but the canopy does not give deep shade, it is bright, just not much direct sunlight and not for very many hours. I am worried it is not getting enough sun. I planted it in amended soil of compost and I add additives monthly to keep the soil acidic. Do they normally get off to a slow start? Does it take several years to get established enough to flower?
