Default azaleas?

Is there a way to lengthen the bloom time of azaleas down here? A couple
friends have been asking, and afaik, azaleas are happiest with cool nights
(around 60F) and maybe azaleas can be deadheaded. Anybody? Anne?

Thanks

Arwen

Another azalea question - I need to trim back the azaleas in front of my
house windows as they are getting too tall. Is the best time, right after
they finish blooming? How drastic can I go without hurting the blooms for
next year?

My understanding is that it can be pretty drastic as long as you
avoid new growth.

(The new growth doesn't start until after the blooming).
