Can I plant azaleas in Zone 9?

Can I plant azaleas in Zone 9?

Good question!

Though I like to experiment with plants and see what happens, this isn’t a good idea. Our Electric Lights Double Pink Azalea is hardy to zone 7. Most azaleas do best with some afternoon shade. Here’s a list of plants that will do well in a zone 9 garden. Vitex would be a really good option.

Thanks for writing!
