Does the deciduous azalea have the same needs as regular azalea ? I got some great advice on planting azaleas in alkaline soil in this forum . Just curious if it would be the same !

You'd want to follow the same guidelines for soil - Both types prefer well-drained, humus-y, acidic soil. Most deciduous azaleas prefer more sun for best bloom and a little fuller appearance. In too much shade, they will flower less and are more vulnerable to powdery mildew (something I have to be careful of here in my cloudy coastal climate).

Generally speaking, the deciduous types will be taller...
