Mottling on Japanese Azalea leaves

Although there are some nice buds forming, the leaves of my Azalea have brown stains and a lot of yellowy leaves.  Is it O.K.?  I would also like to move it, can I do it now, or must I leave it until it has flowered?


  • Not sure what the problem is altho' yellowing can be a sign of iron deficiency. Have you been watering with tap water? As it is stiil mild you could give it some irom sequestrene feed, and an acid mulch.

    It's a bit late in the year for remedial action. You could move it now but if it is sickly that might be risky. I would cosset it where it is, enjoy next year's flowers if it has some and then move it.

    Hate to disagree with You Verdun but Im not sure how moving will help if we dont know whats wrong with it. I think that ww.s idea of sequestrene and an ericaceous mulch would be best. Adopt a wait and see policy.
