Do azaleas bloom in winter?

Azaleas form flower buds during early summer if they receive adequate moisture. If they then have a period of four to eight weeks of temperatures below 50° F in the winter, they will break into bloom all at once the following spring, and stay in bloom about two weeks.

Moreover, do azaleas die in the winter?

Azaleas are either evergreen or deciduous. Deciduous azaleas drop all of their leaves in the fall. In colder climates or extremely cold weather, evergreen azaleas may drop most of their leaves during the winter. Leaves that turn brown, die and drop off during the summer usually indicate a problem with the azalea.

Also, what is the blooming season for azaleas? Azaleas usually bloom in March or April. New cultivars have been developed that bloom later (into May and June) and a new type -- Encore -- flowers twice, in both spring and again in the late summer, states North Carolina State University.

Similarly, it is asked, how do you winterize azaleas?

To properly winterize your Azaleas, saturate their root structure with water when you start seeing frost and the ground starts to freeze. Do this early in the morning, and then again in the evening. This will help your Azaleas acclimate to freezing during the winter.

Will azaleas bloom again?

There is a variety of Azaleas that blooms more than once; it is called the Encore series. If you have this type of azalea it can bloom again in the summer and in the fall. If you do not have this type of azalea it will not bloom again, and you need to prune them before July.
