Planting Azaleas and Spacing

Posted by Towsonite none (My Page) on

I am going to be planting a row of azaleas and do not want there to be any space in between. The grower's label says spacing should be 4ft. If I want to be certain that the azaleas are growing together, but, of course, not too crowded and lose all shape, how far apart would you plant them? 3ft, 3.5ft, 4ft?

I had a landscaper friend who planted some in the past for me at around 3ft, despite me suggesting otherwise, saying they "would never reach that in umpteen years, don't worry about it, yada yada yada." So, I'm also wondering whether I should transplant those as well before they become too big to move.

Both the earlier azaleas and the current ones are supposed to be 4'wide and 4.5'high.

Thanks for your help!

I think that anyone giving you advice will want to know what kind of azaleas you're going to plant, as well as your general location.

Hi, the ones I plan to plant are Encore Autumn Twist. The earlier planted were Autumn Jewel. I'm in Maryland 7a.
