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

RE: Encore Azaleas

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.
