When should azaleas be pruned?


Learning when azaleas should be pruned will ensure they grow their best. The best time to prune azaleas is when they have completely finished flowering. Remove individual branches back to where they are joined by a branch that is larger. Never prune the plant after the middle of June, as this could result in less flowering. Remove any dead branches or wilting leaves in the late summer. Azaleas should never be sheared, as this will cause unhealthy twig grown in the plants.
