Zimmerazales are considered annuals that are disposed of immediately after flowering. Garden azaleas, however, remain with us. But why is it like that? Can not you also overwinter the azalea from the house? We tell you.
Basically, you must know that the flowering time of the azalea falls in the fall and winter. Therefore, the term of wintering is rather inappropriate.
Instead, ask yourself whether the houseplants can bloom several times in succession and how you can manage that.
The wintering already begins to extend the flowering time of the plant.
There are three tricks:
- Cool location
- No drafts
- No direct sun

The ideal temperature for a long flowering time is between 8 and 16 degrees. The bedroom is often the perfect place for an azalea, but the hallway or kitchen can also be suitable. Drafts must always be avoided, as the room azalea quickly withdraws the power from the flowers, which promotes the flowering. Direct sun does not like the flowers, so they wither quickly. For the longest possible flowering period, the plant should experience at most a little morning or evening sun.
When the flowering time is over, the Zimmerazalee looks bald and unappealing. You do not need to dispose of them, because with the right tricks, the plant will produce new flowers next year.

When the flowers have withered, the right care has been taken to enable them to spend the winter.
1 In the first step, the remaining seeds must be carefully removed and cut out. This is important because the seeds will continue to be fed by the plant and will lack the power to flower. Therefore, remove the seeds and replant the azalea. By May, the plant should now be stored brightly but cool.
2 In May, place the Zimmerazalee outside. Choose a shady and sheltered place where there is no draft. If you have the chance, plant the azalea in a shady flowerbed. Make sure that the root ball is always moist, but that it does not form waterlogging. As soon as the nighttime temperatures drop in the first few days of September, the azalea will form new buds.
3 Before the first night frost, get the plant back into the apartment and put it in a cool place.
In summary, you can enjoy your azalea for several years if you:
- Remove seeds from the last flower
- Store the plant bright and cool until May
- Bring the azalea outdoors from May to September
- choose a shady summer place
- bring the azalea to the house before the first night frost
Überw Hibernate garden azaleas
Half-height or tall azaleas, which may decorate the flowerbeds in the garden or train hedges, can of course remain in the garden during frost over the winter. These are usually the rhododendrons, whose foliage drops in winter, so that the plant can protect itself against the cold.
Azaleas in tubs
However, if you keep half-height azaleas on the patio or balcony in tubs, you must protect the plant in winter. Night frost damages potted plants as the roots do not protrude deep enough to absorb water. Bring your azalea in the planter before the first night frost in the apartment and place it in a shady and cool place. Location selection should not be close to the heater and should not provide draft. If the seedbeds also cut back on the potted plants after flowering, the azalea will re-bud in the next fall.
With these tricks you will be able to enjoy wonderful flowers in late autumn and early winter and make sure that you enjoy the flowers for several years.
By the way, if you do not want to see the bare green in summer, you can simply plant the azalea in a flowerbed and plant tall perennials around it. The perennials give the azalea important shade and prevent you from having to look at the bleak green over the summer.
