Do you guys know what causes this?
hey take a pic of a close up of the leaves and branches for me and I can better help you out
Snow damage to the branch is possible that close to a building and sidewalk.
Follow the branch all the way in and there will probably be cracked bark. Or a critter chewing on it.
Ya, I was going to say winter damage too. Around here in Zone 5, we have to plant azalea's in protected areas to keep them alive.
The rest of the bush seems to be thriving, so I would just cut out the bad section sooner than later so it has a chance to fill in some this season.
Thanks guys, I just wanted to make sure that it wasn't something that would take out the rest of the plant. I'll give it a very close look the next time I'm there.
Not to hi-jack your thread but I planted azeleas on the east side of my house late this spring. They were blooming when I planted them but soon lost their blooms. I water and acid feed as the nursery instructed. Plants look plenty healthy but no further blooms. Is this normal for a first year transplant? thanks
Another tip on azaleas- always try and buy northern-grown, especially in the mid-west and further up. The majority of nurseries stock truckloads of azaleas and rhodos grown in the deep south. They will not perform as well and take hits in the winter.
That's probably why they don't bloom very well around here.
Not sure of your zone, but we're zone five.
The Karen Azalea seems to be the best grower for us.
We also have a few rhodos that do well to, but can't remember the names right now.
Don't know the variety that was planted, but we have one on a property that we care for now. It is on the South side of the house and thrives there. Impressive blooms and healthy foliage.
We are borderline zone 3 and 4. Back in the 70's we were z.3
