The Q&A Archives: Transplanting Azaleas To A New Location

Question: When is the best time of year to transplant existing azaleas
to a new location? Are these plants hardy in sunlight or do they require lots of shade? Also I was told the you had an azalea bush that flower with blue blooms, could you give me some info on this bush as well?

Answer: As a general guideline, move plants just as they are going out of dormancy and starting to grow again, i.e., late winter/early spring. Azaleas do better in partial shade or dappled sunlight, rather than direct sun. 'Happy Days' is a violet-purple; 'Blue Danube' is bluish-violet. You can learn more about them and see a photo by going to the Plant Finder on Monrovia's website and inputting their names.
