The Q&A Archives: Yellowing Leaves on Azalea

Question: My leaves on my white azaelas are turning yellow and dark brown on the tip. How much should I water my white azaelas. I live in new orleans

Answer: Sounds like over watering or poorly draining soils - or an indication that your azalea needs to be fed. Landscape trees and shrubs generally require one inch of water per week, applied slowly so it can trickle down and wet the entire root mass. I'd feed the plant with an Azalea/Rhododendron Fertilizer and water it deeply each week. I think you will see an improvement in its appearance. Hope so!
