RE: Hanging azalea
- Can I bring my hanging azalea into the house during the winter
months,? Or, can it be left outside to winter over. Do I have to
prune if left outside?
- IF your hanging basket azalea is a recently acquired
greenhouse grown florist' azalea is it probably not
winter hardy unless you are in hardiness zones 8, 9 or
10. It is really too late in the season to prune
outdoor growing azaleas since their new growth will be
killed by frost, if you are in an area with winter
frosts. If you have a good sunroom the azalea could
survive the winter indoors, but it is not the best of
house plants, since it requires good sunlight. Where
do you live and what labels were on the azalea?
