Yamadori Azalea

Post  Tona on Thu Oct 23, 2014 1:39 am

Hi all,
I have dug up a few trees over the last few years but never an Azalea. I have an opportunity to take a large Azalea (not sure what kind). It blooms profusely each year. It has a 4-5 inch caliper. What is the best time to do it and can I chop it below the foliage or do I need to leave foliage above the chop?
Thanks for any help,
Tona

Where you are, I suspect late December or early January would be a fine time to dig.

Azalea are forgiving, but are sometimes reluctant to rebud when all the green has been cut.

Hi Jim,
Sorry I should have said I am in Southern California.

You did. In your profile, which is why I said "In your location . . . "
