No White Azaleas This Past Season

I have a half dozen white azaleas, probably Delawares, scattered around a 1/3 acre lot. None flowered this year, first time I have ever noticed this, yet all my other azaleas flowered. Did anyone else experience this or know why this happened?

RE: No White Azaleas This Past Season

My whites (unknown variety) didn't flower either but then there were almost no flowers on any azaleas in the border they're in. I lay it to the dry conditions last year during late summer when they were setting buds. I even lost a few old established plants that I thought were probably drought proof by now. The only ones that flowered well were in a bed I water with a soaker hose when it gets exceptionally dry and some Encores in a foundation bed against the east side of the house. Hopefully things will be better this year and they will put on a good show next spring.

Mine bloomed like gangbusters this year. It is the only color I have, so I have nothing to compare to. I am not sure what variety I have but they were gorgeous.
