Hey everyone thought I would share one of my new projects. I purchased this Azalea from Home Depot this spring. I was planning on letting it grow wild this year to gain some vigor before doing anything with it next year. I was planning on pruning it back hard but was wondering how azaleas deal with that? I was unsure of how many stages I should do the reduction in. I was planning on eventually possibly pruning it back to look like the last picture or something similar.
