Q: Can azaleas be planted in containers instead of in the ground? I’ve never seen them in containers.
A: Smaller-sized azaleas do fine in containers. Read the plant label to find out their mature size. The Encore azalea experts list several of their small varieties, such as Autumn Coral and Autumn Angel, at www.encoreazalea.com. Additionally, Satsuki type azaleas are generally low-growing and they flower in May, extending the azalea bloom season.
