What locations is good form planting an azalea plant in central Indiana . Do they require full sun partial sun? Should they be planted close to the house to block the winter winds?
- What you are talking about is rooting an azalea (evergreen I presume) from a woody cutting. The leaves need to be mature and not soft, or you can remove all soft shoots and soft leaves. Find a shady location. Fill a hole with composted pine bark, stick the cutting/small branch into the hole several inches and keep the cutting well watered such that it does not wilt. This will work and is the simplest way.Mike Creel, SC USDA Zone 8a
