Does deadheading promote reblooming in azaleas?

If I cut the wilted flowers from my azaleas, will they bloom again this year? I've heard that deadheading promotes rebloom.

I'm sorry to say that azaleas bloom only once a season. Some types of plants will reward you with a second flush of bloom if the first blossoms are cut off as they fade. Unfortunately, azaleas and most other woody shrubs lack this capability. Although taking off dead flowers won't make the plants bloom again, it will make them look better. When the flowers are spent, snap them off where they join the center of the leaf clusters.
