An azalea can become overgrown and leggy, and although rejuvenating pruning is beneficial.



For major pruning, the best time is in early spring before the plant is ready to put out new growth, so it has the full growing season to fill out and for the new growth to mature. When pruning azaleas to reduce height, particularly older plants, it is best to do the pruning in stages, to minimize the shock to the takedownshrub.pwted Reading Time: 1 min.

Dec 17, A mature azalea that outgrows its space or becomes leggy and unattractive can benefit from rejuvenating pruning to cut back old wood. Such pruning cuts are done while the shrub is dormant in winter. Most shrubs won't do this, but you can sometimes cut an azlea back almost to ground level and still have it rejuvenate, although it takes a few years to do it. You should cut it back immediately after flowering finishes, or as soon thereafter as possible.

This would probably be an acceptable weekend to do it. Prune azaleas soon after they bloom in the spring or early summer. The perfect time is when spent flowers begin to discolor and shrivel.

Cutting them back in late summer, fall, or winter will remove flowerbuds and keep them from blooming. A pair of hand clippers and loppers are all you'll need.



Be careful to water the plant well every few weeks, especially just after the azalea blooming periods are over.



We do not recommend ever cutting an azalea shorter than 12 inches tall. If you cut back the plant all the way to the ground, you risk the plant becoming weakened by poor nutrition or disease and die.

The plant may also take up to 3 years to bloom again if you cut back the shrub that much.
