I bought my first azalea at my club auction and expected it to stay green through the winter. However, when our first cold front came through and temps dropped into the lower 40's, the leaves began changing color. I didn't expect it but it looks nice. My parents have had potted Azaleas in their backyard for years with no more winter protection than a sheet thrown over top. I am just down the street and figured mine would do well with similar protection. My question is, will this azalea lose its leaves this winter?
