Azalea is a decorative block.

Flowering azalea is the flowering variant of azalea.



Azalea can be broken instantly using any tool or by hand. Harvesting an azalea with shears consumes the durability of the shears for no additional benefit.

A flower also breaks if a piston extends or pushes a block into its location.

Natural generation[edit]

Azalea and its flowering counterpart generate commonly on top of moss blocks in lush caves.


When decayed or mined with any tool except shears, azalea leaves and flowering azalea leaves have a 5% chance to drop azalea and flowering azalea, respectively. However, despite dropping in a similar way to saplings, they can't be used to grow azalea trees.‌[Java Edition only] The Fortune enchantment increases the rate to 6.25% at level I, 8.33% at level II, and 10% at level III.

When using a bone meal on a moss block, each block in a 3×3 to 7×7 area has a 15% chance of growing an azalea and a 5% chance of growing a flowering azalea.


Flowering azaleas function like any other flowers in their interaction and uses with bees.

Azalea can be placed only on grass blocks, dirt, coarse dirt, podzol, moss blocks, farmland, or clay.


Putting an azalea in a composter has a 65% chance of increasing the composing level. Flowering azaleas have an 85% chance.


Azalea can be used as a fuel source in furnaces, smelting 0.5 items per azalea.


Bees can polinate flowering azalea.


Fences can be attached to both kinds of azaleas.

Growing Trees[edit]

In Bedrock Edition, using bone meal on an azalea or flowering azalea may grow an azalea tree. When bone mealed, azalea and flowering azalea can grow into trees when placed on dirt, coarse dirt, rooted dirt, farmland, podzol, or a grass block, they don't grow on moss block.
