I'm having problems with my azaleas. They are/were mature plants and started getting yellow leaves with brown spots on them. They are slowly dying one limb at a time. What can I do to stop this?

I'd use a fungicide spray on the azaleas. Funginex, Daconil, Bayleton are all registered for use on azaleas. Be sure to apply according to label directions. You might also want to prune your azaleas to remove the most affected stems and branches which will remove some of the fungal spores from the plant and also open it up to better air circulation, which will also help stop the spread of the disease.
