The Q&A Archives: azalea

Question: my azaleas have a moss growing on them what is it and how do i get rid of it?

Answer: Azaleas sometimes are hosts to algae growth. As a rule, the algae is not feeding off the azaleas, but it can hold too much moisture against the bark and eventually cause rot. You can use a lime/sulfur spray directly on the moss or lichen to kill it and it will eventually slough off, or after it is dead you can peel or rub it off.
