I was given a Mandarin Lights Azalea plant. Why are leaves wilting?

    Hi Estella, This is a page from a catalog that sells the plant you have, but it also has some tips on caring for it. After reading it, and since you're in MN, I suspect that it's just part of the "getting ready for winter" process - although your question did get cut of and I can't be sure what the leaves have been showing. Read the lower part of this link and maybe it will help.

    Since it is an Azalea, I thought I'd also add this which is for general Azalea care.

    I did see a comment where someone said that the leaves on these plants turn purple in the fall, so if that's what you wrote about, it's completely normal.

    Good luck. I hope this helps.
