Why are my azaleas wilted even when I water everyday?

Rhododendrons and Azaleas are native to mountainous regions where the ground stays moist but drains very quickly.  Therefore, many times when we plant them in our home landscapes and do not provide a good soil amendment, they become water logged at times and develop a root rot disease which slowly or immediately kills the plant.  Before planting, make sure the bed area is raised and has been modified to allow for proper drainage but also be sure to water once a week during hot dry summers because these plants are very shallow rooted.
