Taking Care of Encore Azaleas in the Summer

Encore Azalea by Connie@VA

Encore Azaleas wants you to know how to treat your azaleas during the hot days of summer.

The heat of summer can be harsh on all plants, and we at EncoreĀ® Azalea would like to help you prepare.

Keep a watchful eye on the moisture level of the soil around your Encore Azaleas.

The shallow fibrous roots like to be moist, but not saturated. A mulch of pine bark will help hold moisture near the roots, as well as protect the roots from the harsh rays of the sun.

This is your last chance to prune for the season. Any heavy pruning should be done immediately after your Encore Azalea’s spring bloom cycle. Remember only to prune lightly in high heat.
