I dont have any customers with azaleas and would like a bit of advice. I am looking for some pointers on trimming azaleas. I am not concerned about removing flowers or possible new buds, but I would like to form them into a hedge. Right now they are very thin and scraggly looking and appear to have some sort of fungus or mites (I'm not sure, its gold in color), they also have shoots that tower out above the shrub. These shrubs are about 2 seasons old and are my own. The area they are in get about 4-5 hours of morning sun (maybe not enough sun), but I planted them in this area because nothing else would grow do to low light.
