I asked several times about these azaleas when my landscaper said azaleas are not sun plants...and I was told several times and as stated on the site they are sun plants. My landscaper is also telling me these are not dwarf azaleas, only time would tell but I'm thinking I should have taken her word for it, since she told me NOT to plant them in the sun...and I had them planted there anyway and they are dead-completely crispy even with all of the rain and overcast we have had I had them planted in a sunny spot on top of a hill so they would drain well...but they started browning and I thought they would bounce back when we had forecast for a lot more sun, but now they are dead. I do have 3 out of the 6 I bought that she said may be salvaged if I dig them up and plant them in a shade spot as soon as possible. They are all brown, but she said it might be worth a try but she thinks they may be too far gone. Wish I could return these ; /

Carefully packaged and shipped, the azalea had already produced and lost it's spring blooms. I've had it for about a month now. It appears to be healthy and green. Anxiously, awaiting the next bloom cycle.
