kathleen howard asked 12 years ago

I have a lovely white azalea that flowered profusely two yrs ago, and since then when it flowers it looks as though its withering at the same time as the flowers are brown/withered looking in parts,some have brown centres before flowereing! any ideas, it is otherwise healthy looking and is now reverted to all green leaves again after flowering has finished.

This sounds like weather damage. Try giving it more shelter as white-flowered plants are often a bit softer. It might have suffered some frost damage even before the flowers opened.
