Azalea: the flower of winter. Only this characteristic already reveals the special and symbolic side of this plant. But the azalea goes far beyond its meanings, the flower is also a great ally of the decoration of parties and interiors. The delicate, vibrant petals fill the moods of joy and life. Azalea is a plant of oriental origin, more precisely coming from Japan and China. There, in the land of the rising sun, the plant is known as “tree of flowers”. Already in Brazil, the azalea has adapted very well and it is possible to see it bloom in gardens, roads and public squares.

Azalea characteristics

Azaleas are considered medium shrubs with growth ranging from 60 centimeters to 1.2 meters in height. Azalea blossoms can be simple or bent showing a wide variety of colors, from white to red, to yellow, orange, pink and mixed colors.

Azaleas bloom in the months of winter, which is a curious thing, since in this period most plants are in hibernation.

How to plant and make azalea seedlings

Azaleas can be planted in pots or in gardens and flowerbeds. But before placing the plant on land, observe the conditions of the place. Azaleas need at least four hours of sun daily to develop properly. In case you plant it in a garden, you prefer a place where the azalea is protected from the wind.

The soil for planting should be prepared with a part of clay soil, one part sand and another part with organic substrate. For planting in the pot, remember to make a good drainage system because the plant does not support soggy soils. After preparing the soil and choosing the best location for your azalea, you can plant it.

Now if you are thinking of making azalea seedlings it is also a very simple task. To make azalea seedlings cut a strong branch showing branches and side leaves at least 7 to 10 centimeters in length. Leave only four or five leaves at the top of the branch.

Prepare a vase according to the above mentioned guidance and, very importantly, do not use fertilizers at planting or seedling creation. It is necessary to wait three months after planting to make the fertilization.

About two months later the cuttings will already be rooted and ready to be transplanted to a definite location. azalea

Care with azalea is relatively simple. If it has been placed in a pot indoors it is important to keep it in a sunny and well-lit place.

For potassium azaleas, watering is ideal every two days, but if the plant was placed in the garden, water it only if the weather is dry and warm for more than a week.

Pruning should be done only after the flowering period, as well as fertilization. If you notice wilted, fallen, or yellowish leaves, your azalea may be dying, but do not panic. Make sure you are not exaggerating the amount of water or if you have not been using it for some time. Make the necessary corrections and soon the azalea will be recovered.
