Choose the right location and conditions for your new Orange Macrantha Azalea to thrive.
Spring and Fall are ideal times to plant Azaleas. However, if you avoid freezing and extremely hot temperatures you can plant any time of the year
Be sure your azalea is planted in an area that gets some shade and has well-drained, acidic soil. If your soil is alkaline, you can amend it. To acidify your soil amend with compost, elemental sulfur, or use fertilizers specific for acid loving plants. Mulching with pine straw or pine bark will help over time as they begin to break down, but are not an immediate solution. To improve drainage in something like a heavy clay soil, add compost and be sure to loosen up the soil well before planting.
Choose a balanced, slow-release fertilizer like the one we carry here. Fertilize in early spring to give the upcoming blooms a boost. You don’t need to prune azaleas, but pruning after they are done blooming can help encourage a bushier growth and renew an older plant.
Use in hedges or foundation and mass plantings for tons of brilliant color. The Orange Macrantha Azalea is a lovely accent in mixed beds and colorful garden getaways. Plant this azalea around the base of your favorite shade tree for a bold look. The Orange Macrantha is a knockout in containers on your patio, deck, or porch.
